I am using Lightning with the latest Windows Thunderbird, synced with Google Calendar via CalDAV.
The addon is great and powerful. I encountered a few problems though:
1) Many docs available online are outdated and suggest to download an addon to sync with Google Calendar instead of using CalDAV. I had problems with that addon.
2) For some reason, if offline (and that includes in the very first seconds after resuming the laptop from sleep, i.e. several times a day), Lightning likes to open up a dialog that looks like a browser page, pointing at "accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/...". The dialog of course gives a 404-styled page "Server not found" as the computer is offline. The user then has to either close this dialog, or hit F5, and "Accept" to tell Google (for the n-th time) that Lightning has the authorization to access my calendar. I assume that this window is supposed to stay invisible and succeed silently, but if offline, it fails non-silently. Note that TB's Password Manager confirms that my Google Calendar password is known and stored.
Congrats on a really quick bugfix! :-)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52).
@Alex, you can get what you want by dragging the website icon (from the Awesome Bar) into the sidebar. Of course this looks like a bug - the tab is much bigger and thus easier and more intuitive to drag.
I have another one - the original Scrapbook let you drag with the Alt key pressed, in which case a link would be stored instead of the whole text of the page. SB+ seems to ignore the Alt key (at least for me) and always captures the full page. The only workaround is through the menus, either contextual or in the menu bar. Please, please fix this as it's really annoying to have so many clicks on the way.
Otherwise, SB+ works great for me. Thanks for the amazing work!!
