I have the latest Thunderbird 60.2.1 and want to try out the calendar. I have looked in Add-ons and in Options but I can't find it anywhere. Must I install it? From where? The only download I could find was compatible only with TB up to 52. Any info much appreciated.

What version of Thunderbird are you using?
Are you accessing this site to get the download? https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/th ... lightning/

That's the site I looked at, yes. It says the download is for 52 - 52*

This link was noted as providing access to versions compatible with TB 60. https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/calendar/li ... andidates/

The current stable release for Thunderbird 60.2.1 is Lightning 6.2.2.1.

Don't use it. It is old and contains bugs that were resolved in later releases. Try the xpi package that is shipped with Thunderbird. You can get one by downloading and extracting the thunderbird*.tar.bz2 from mozilla website.

You can extract the xpi package from the setup executable with the 7-Zip utility in Windows.

Code: Select all
7z e "Thunderbird Setup 60.2.1.exe" core\distribution\extensions\{e2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103}.xpi
