problem with Arch Linux Distribution Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Arch provides thunderbird w/o builtin lightning. You have to install lightning as plugin
If builtin lightning is available as version 5.4 for thunderbird, why the stand-alone plugin is not available as version 5.4?
Update Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Please Update this for Earlybird 53.0a2/54.0a2This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7.8).
The a2 builds have Lightning bundled, please check the Add-On Manager to see if it is maybe just disabled
Disabled at TB upgrade time, now where is the option to re-enable ? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Upgrading TB on a friend's computer from TB 3x, on the last hop I unchecked the Lightning option believing the notification of "Lightning is now embeded in application" refered to a previously installation as a plugin. Now I can't find where to enable it back.
[EDIT] I checked & know I can download it from AMO or Plugins Manager/Catalog. I just wanted to know if there is an enable/disable option in Options/Preferences.
You can enable/disable Lightning in the add-ons manager, which you can find in the tools menu.
next months on the left please Rated 5 out of 5 stars
would be cool to see hte next months on the left ( maybe just 2 months extra, with all the days) just on top of the schedule list.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7.4).
Not enough nowadays Rated 3 out of 5 stars
If you just need a simple calendar, Lightning is for you.
But in the new age, where computers are needed to keep track of your precious time, Lightning is not more than an oldie.
It can only handle a single calendar from one domain via CalDAV and can't get all calendars from a single domain.
On Android everything is working fine. Now it would be nice if it would also work on the desktop computer.
As this bug exists since 5 years (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=707138), I don't think anything will be solved in the near future. I'm really willing for a donation. But for this, the software has to work as intented.
Endlosschleife Geistertermin Rated 5 out of 5 stars
"Dieser Eintrag wurde kürzlich auf dem Server geändert. Durch das löschen dieses Eintrags gehen alle Änderungen auf dem Server verloren."
Buttons: "Trotzdem löschen" oder "Änderungen verwerfen oder neu laden"
Klick auf: "Trotzdem löschen" -> Fenster erst mal geschlossen.
Nervt aber irgendwann erneut.
Klick auf: "Änderungen verwerfen oder neu laden" -> Fenster bleibt hartnäckig.
Der betroffene Termin ist im Google Kalender bereits gelöscht.
Trotzdem keine Änderung. Nur deaktivieren von Lightning hilft; aber dann fehlt der Kalender.
Neuinstallation: Keine Änderung.
Offlinemodus an/aus: Keine Änderung.
Gibt es einen Debug-Modus, der ein Log mitschreibt?
Lightning does wrork on a fresh installa of ubuntu 16.04.2 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Hello I like versy much lightning but it doesn't work with the default thunderbird version of ubuntu 16.04.2 : thunderbird 45.7.0
"Le composant binaire nécessaire pour Lightning ne peut pas être chargé, probablement en raison d'une mauvaise combinaison de versions. Lightning 4.7.4 est installé, mais vous devriez utiliser une version de la série 4.7."
I tried to install olders versions of the addon without succes
Please contact the ubuntu packagers for this issue, or make sure you are using Thunderbird from mozilla.org instead of the one provided by Ubuntu.
Very precious addon but... not synced in beta version Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I'm using a Thunderbird 52.0b2.
A beta version of Lightnings ( 5.4b1 ) is supposed to be available for my version of Thunderbird (see : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Calendar/Calendar_Versions )
But it's a mystery where to load it...
*The main goal of the Calendar Team is to synchronize the Lightning release cycle with Thunderbird*
A pity : it a little hard to remain beta tester.
The beta versions of Lightning are now included with Thunderbird, so there is no longer a need to upload them to addons.mozilla.org. Also, the beta functionality on addons.mozilla.org is in the process of being removed. If you are still getting older Lightning versions, please try uninstalling Lightning from your profile, on the next startup it should install the one packaged with the distribution. You may also need to re-install Thunderbird Beta (without an uninstall), but the first variant should be enough.
CalDav sync broken with TB 45.6.0 Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Lightning will publish events to a CalDav server, but won't receive updates made by other clients.
TB 45.6.0, Lightning 4.7.6
dont work Rated 3 out of 5 stars
45.5.1 version Thunder, Lightning 220.127.116.11This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7.4).
Please correct timezone for Turkey (Istanbul) in Lightning Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Time in Turkey is given by UTC+03:00 year-round. This time is also called Turkey Time (TRT). The time is currently same as in the Arabia Standard Time and Moscow Time zone. Turkey Time was adopted by the Turkish government on September 8, 2016. It is also in use in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
So, it must be:
We are making use of the olson timezones data, which is updated regularly. The latest development version of Lightning uses the most recent changes and should have timezones updated (slightly different probably, but the result would be the same). I agree it would be great to get timezone updates out to existing versions quicker though.
plus de défilement de l'agenda Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Un bon agenda mais parfois un comportement étrange.
Depuis quelques jours, plus de défilement de l'agenda, qui reste bloqué sur le mois en cous. plus moyen non plus de basculer sur un autre affichage (jour, semaine, multisemaine...) .
Auriez vous une solution ? Merci
Incorporating Gmail Reminders? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Any chance a future release will allow users to pull in Google's new "Reminders" as well as tasks and events? That would be SUPER handy. Honestly, I'm surprised no one has asked about this yet (unless I'm looking in the wrong place?). Anyhow, great work! This add-on works great for me! Will be making a contribution as soon as "Reminders" start showing up!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7.4).
Incompatibility to TB through time Rated 4 out of 5 stars
At one time TB and Lightning were fully compatible and the last one was "included" in some way into TB. But then TB continued beeing developed (now they are distributing V 50 Beta 3) while Lightning remains incompatible to TB 49, the one I have currently installed. As long as was able to use both together, I was really happy and satisfied using them. It would be ideal to have both tools integrated (as it was for a short time) or made compatible in such a way, so that a user must not worry if he uses "automatic updates" (which was my problem). Do you have any suggestions for me until a Lightning version compatible with TB 49 appears? Thanks!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7.4).
Lightning is still integrated into Thunderbird, this has not changed. If it is not the case for your installation, I'd suggest contacting support.
Needed improvements Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I like TB a lot, been using it for years. My suggestions regarding "Snooze for" on the "Reminders" list - it should have:
1) also "weeks" on the pull-down list
2) fully customizable list of the default values above and extended to 10 or more positions
Incessant freezeup make this unuseable. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I agree with "I Give Up". A great tool but incessant freeze up makes it entirely unuseable. Sadly that leaves Thunderbird as only an email program not a full featured personal manager.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7).
Lightning Install tip Rated 4 out of 5 stars
To vaid problem on MAC install both Lightning and Provider Google Calendar in order to work.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7).
I Give Up Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Well Thunder bird updates and Lightning stops working again.
I expect it's fixable; but I've got a desktop widget that does a decent job of linking up with google calendar, so I think I'll go with that; and return Thunderbird to just being a mail client.
Top-Kalender Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Fügt Thunderbird eine sehr gute Kalender-Funktionalität hinzuThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7).
Installed without warning, and breaks Thunderbird add-ons Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This add-on was added with a Thunderbird update without prompting me to approve. With the latest update of Thunderbird 45.1.1 one of my essential add-ons was broken. Thanks, Mozilla. Two hours of lifetime wasted while trying to detect the misbehaviour and repair addon functionality.
The solution was to disable Lightning. Do not (!) remove it because it might come back with the next update.
Mozilla staff: Stop giving me something I didn't ask for without prompting me.
It would have been interesting to know which add-on Lightning has broken. Lightning is now an integral part of Thunderbird and if the few UI elements it adds are really bothersome you can still disable it.
