Thunderbird Calendars Nightmare in Windows or Ubuntu

Oct 19, 2009, 15:02 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to PmaBox for this link. ]

"a) Basically you immediately find this bug in all calendars. MODIFICATION_FAILED which means that after you added the calendar and it shows all the events, if you try to add, change or delete an event you get bumped with this error message and the calendar turns to read-only mode. Therefore renders the calendars useless in the client.

"b) Another bug is related to https hosted calendars. In these cases we need to add a (signed or not) security certificate from the server. Thunderbird keeps forgeting or does not store the certificate, so each time you start Thunderbird you get this annoying and time consuming certificate pop-op. After you accept the certificate you get the error message."
