Love the Lightning Add-on!!! This add-on is what makes Thunderbird such an effective program!

Is there a way you could add a year view (like month or multi-week view) where 'day events' could be shown.

I use Thunderbird as my Imap client for its speed and great filtering ability. Then I found the Lightning add-on and since then I have not opened my Outlook 2007 since then! I don't usually write reviews but once in a while you just have to say THANK YOU!!!

Where can I post feature requests?

I need a plugin to notify the user when the user try to create an appointment for the same time where another appointments still exists (clash of appointments).

Out of the box worked as expected. Interface so smooth I almost missed it on a busy screen.
I'd prefer a 24 hr time option and access to a 'standard' calendar of National Public Holidays.
Early days yet but I like the ease of adding events.

It seems good. Although, from what I can see in the javascript code the calendar data are stored in an sql database. WHY!? If you use the standard ICS format then I can point many programs to the same ICS file and have them all have access to them. I have a sidebar widget that can display a small calendar as a prompter. Then, (should lightning directly support the same file) I could use it for email, calendar, and sync with my windows mobile. Why re-invent the wheel? Just give me a better, easier to use wheel.

Lightning is an awesome addon for thunderbird but i'd like to see an option to switch the AM/PM timestamp to 24h formatted timestamp in the calendar view.

won't work on Linux x86_64 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The Linux download won't work or even install on x86_64 systems.

There is an Linux x86_64 version available on the support web site under "Other Systems".

Too bad the mozilla add-ons pages can't make that one available.

Great...but still going to stick with Outlook Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Absolutely great, and would have been a perfect replacement for my Outlook 2007...except for the seeming fact that whatever changes I make to my calendar in TBird will not sync with my Google Calendar. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong with the Provider for Google Calendar plugin or something, but if I can't make changes to my GCalendar via TBird, then I might as well keep my calendar management on Outlook. At least that, by minimum, syncs with Google Calendar.

Need different version Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really like the package, but have to use 0.8 because 0.9 is not available in the version I need. Is there any chance of getting Lightning 0.9 in a Linux_x86_64-gcc3 version?

How to print the task list? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's very good add-ons, but how I can print the task list?

Good but needs improvements Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I am impressed, how much has been done in the last few years (usability, much better look) on this add on. However I find the following weaknesses:
1) the memory consumption is vast: about 80 MB which is approx. 3 times the memory TB uses without this addon is simply too much.
2) The online calendars (in my case I used google calendar) do not get updated if they are updated online, the changes made locally (= in TB) are not reflected in the online version, ...
Good, but keep working.

Works on Ubuntu Intrepid Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Ubuntu users of Hardy and Intrepid, remember to ensure that libstdc++5 is installed before you install this extension(sudo apt-get install libstdc++5).

I have no idea why this makes a difference(there are no error messages if this is *not* installed), but having this package installed *before* installing 0.9 fixes the layout (even in 0.8 and 0.7!) and the problems of calendar functions being disabled.

I installed 0.9 after installing libstdc++5 and copying the storage.sdb from my profile in the hardy backup. 0.9 picked up my old calendars right away. It also seems to work with my Google calendar provider extension.

Caution: Always backup the storage.sdb file in your profile directory before performing any upgradation/reinstalling of Lightning extension.

downgrade to .8 or below from .9 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

0.9 is a pita and learnt it the hardway. So if you would like to downgrade, uninstall the extension, delete the storage.sdb file in your profiles directory ofcourse after backing up and then reinstall a lower version.

So move your calendar events to a network or export as ics and then you can import once the downgrade is complete.

Am happy to be back on 0.7 now. i will test an update to .8 soon.
