Reminders do not work anymore! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I am sorry to report this... I love Google Provider and Lightning... BUT... After installing Lightning 0.9 with Google Calendar Provider 0.5, the reminder alerts do not go off anymore for Google Calendar events after switching views (Calendar to Mail). They are removed from the calendar in Lightning, but they
are still active in Google. Home reminders alerts still work as expected.
All this worked perfectly well before upgrading to Lightning 0.9/Google Provider 0.5 (I have a laptop PC with Lightning 0.8 and Google Calendar Provider 0.4, and everything works as expected there).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Calendar, Update an event that is a Google Calendar event, set a
Reminder, save it.
2. Everything seems to work, a small bell is shown in the calendar page.
3. Switch the view to Mail.
4. Switch the view to Calendar.
5. All the small bells have disappeared! Home calendar events still have the
bell, though. It only affects events that are synchronized with a Google
All the small bells have disappeared! Home calendar events still have the bell,
though. It only affects events that are synchronized with a Google Calendar.
The reminders should still be there. Now they are all set to "No reminder" in
Thunderbird. However, they have been accurately updated in Google Calendar
(they still have the reminder set there, if you go and check them on the Google
Calendar web site).
This behavior happens after upgrading. I mean that the Google Calendar settings
were previously introduced. In fact, everything else seems to work pretty well
with the integration between Lightning and Google Calendar. It is just the
reminders that are no longer working. It is annoying since you rely on
reminders to be aware of events and tasks. Reminders are a MAJOR FEATURE of
I don't know if the problem is with Lightning 0.9, with the Provider 0.5, or with Thunderbird itself... but the combination renders everything much less valuable...
Please see if you can fix this. Thanks a lot!!!!
