I moved my TB profile from system disk to anotther disk by 1) closing TB, 2) moving the profile folder into new loction, 3) starting TB with -P option and creating new profile with the new location as the profile folder.

Now I cannot see calendars, because I cannot see Lightning icons or menu entris anywhere. What do I need to do to rectify the situation?

Figured it out.
1) Restored the original profile folder from backup to system disk.
2) Closed TB.
3) Moved the contents of the old folder to the new folder.
4) Started TB again, and now Lightning works again.

My mistake was to try to jump to the result too straight. I should have created a new empty profile and then move contents as above.
