Hello, I've downloaded the calendar extension and it seems to work fine in the Firebird Browser BUT not at all in the Thunderbird E-mail software. Am I missing something with regard to its operation. The info on the site makes it sound like it works in both.

Calendar works fine in Thunderbird for me. You need to have installed JsLib in Thunderbird for it to work though IIRC

I havecome across this. The calendar can be added to either firebird or thunderbird. I believe the two are slightly different but I have installed both successfully. Make sure you have added the appropriate calendar for Tbird. As far as I know you can'synchronise them easily. Best bet is Mozilla 1.6 for that.

Do I need to do something particular to have TB recognize I've got the thing installed.
Regarding the correct download - I only see one download for the Calendar regardless of whether you are using TB or Firebird
Thanks,

You might have Quick Tools extension to start calendar from Thunderbird.

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/download.html look at the bottom of that page for the correct TB calendar package.

Calander at least for me on windows adds a menu item in the tools menu

I had the same problem. If you look at the bottom of this page it will tell you how to get the thing going.

I feel stupid here, but I am having the same basic problem.
I am running Thunderbird 0.6 and am not able to get the Calendar Extension to work.

I downloaded from the Downloads page "Calendar for Mozillla Thunderbird" From the Linux Line the "Nightly Build" link since that was under the 0.6 column.

When I install it into Thunderbird (using install extension), it appears to install.
I exit Thunderbird and re-start.
The calendar link appears under Tools, and it does open up a window that looks like a calendar, but there is no data shown.

When I try to click any of the buttons or use the drop-down menus, there is absolutely no visible response. The window just stays the same.

If I try the "File -->Close Window" command, the entire Thunderbird client exits.

Any thoughts on what I may be doing wrong?

Try switching themes.

I was getting the same blank grey page with the calendar
in Thunderbird using the Mostly Crystal theme. As soon as
I went back to the default or iCandyJr. themes all worked ok.

You can also open View>Toolbars>Customize and drag the
calendar icon to your toolbar if you want to.

Hope this helps.

I'm looking and I am still using the default "Mozilla Thunderbird" theme that is the only one availiable when you first install the Mail Client.

I'm not sure we are seeing the same thing. When I click on Calendar, I get the Calendar window up.
It has a menu bar with "File, Edit, View, Go, Tools, Help"
It has a Frame with a mini-calendar in it and two tabs "Calendar" and "Calendars"
It has a Tasks Frame with an empty list
It has the Events selection dropdown with an empty list of events.
The big frame shows 6 rows of 7 columns with a "W" before each Row.
However the big graph there shows no data. (No dates or anything)

For kicks I also tried installing the "2004-04-08" linux build that is meant for TB-0.5, and got the exact same behaviour.

Is there any kind of log file that might show what is going on here?
