lost functionality Not yet rated

Maybe I'm in left field, but I installed ligtning because I like the calendar displayed as an add-in or extention to my e-mail program, Thunderbird. I loved it.

Now I upgrade to 0.7 and the calendar display is gone from my e-mail display. Instead it is on a separate page; just like outlook. If I wanted a separate calendar, do you think I might have been able to find one somewhere on the internet?

I'm sure that there are tons of slick new features added, but I use none of them. I just want to see the calendar while I write emails in Thunderbird, and click an appointment note when I need to. This upgrade rivals a Microsoft upgrade in its ability to eliminate existing functionalty.

Perhaps I will be chastised for failing to figure out how to get the functionality that I used to have. But really, if I can't find it by dragging separator bars, right clicking items, and browsing the menu items within a minute or two, then it might as well not be there.
