I'm beginning to wonder if it's some misconfiguration from the Google server end. They do break things quite regularly. The past few reminders I've had have cleared without issue.
Have you looked to see if it's showing anything in the Error Console?
I'm using 102.10.1 (64 bit) and Google calendar.. was having same issue as everyone else. Fix for me.. In T-bird Google Calendar: Properties-> Email: verify the email in this slot is the google email you used to create the Google calendar. I had a live.com account address in there (wasn't paying attention to details when creating calendar in T-bird), since updating that property, all has been good - going on 2 weeks now.
Dear Thunderbird coders.
I appreciate the effort you have with the email, but the calendar is a constant struggle.
I have had struggles with the calendar during all 20 years I have used it
Right now I can not accept any meeting in the emails. It pops up and shows the list iwth calendars, but when I accept it no email is sent as a reply to the user who invited me NOR does it add any calendar booking into the calendar itself.
When will this start working? I am getting endlessly fed up with this as it makes me miss meetings and look like a comple idiot as if I can not keep track of anything even if my customer snds a proper invitation.
This has been going on for soon 20 years on and off. And I as a user have to have all kinds of geeky things to do. you must step up or people will abandon this. I am on my way already. Microsoft outlook is easy to use.
I suggest you solve this once and for all.
Also, support for microsoft calendars should be added a long time ago. Why can't I simply just use Thunderbird for microsoft calendars?
There seems to be some sort of weird lag on some notifications. The other day, I clicked to dismiss all, and nothing happened, so I thought I'd make a tea then look at the logs while I clicked. When I got back with my drink (call it 7 to 10 minutes) all the notifications were closed.
why can this problem be solved in a robust way once and for all?
I guess the next response may be I ned to get into the editor and set all kinds of things like it always ends up with.
I may be a person who works in the software industry, but I certainly have enough to do than also get into the calendar editor, run scripts and all in Thunderbird also.
Just make this work once and for all
Although I didn't see anything in the release notes for 102.2.0 that addressed this, the issue seems to be resolved - at least for my installation. After the update, a couple of calendar notifications still couldn't be dismissed. However, over a couple of days, they gradually went away. Handling new notifications works as it should.
I've found I'm able to dismiss entries if there isn't a period in them - like Dr. visits, for example. There are still some other issues. Creating new appointments always fills in the current time of day rather than the time where you clicked on the calendar. Seems like calendar doesn't get a lot of attentioin.
yes, this Thunderbird calendar has been a complete rubbish for years and we have to stand it year after year. And no one is getting a proper grip of the situation.
It is enough with this and the false promises and we users can never have a good tool.
As I have previously said the calendar has been complete rubbish for years with endless number of errors with syncing, approving and then we ned to do all kinds of tricks with editors and parameters.
For gods sake, can you make something that is simple and where you do not need to be a nerd to fix the Accept on the calendar?
Can you make it work for good or should we continue another couple of years with complete utter rubbish where we as users look like idiots to our customers and colleagues or are you completely incompetent to make it work once and for all?
I have seen slightly different (mixed) behavior WRT this issue. Usually when I restart Thunderbird, I am able to dismiss the reminders as expected. I assume that's why some folks think it has been resolved while it hasn't really. Unfortunately if I leave Thunderbird up for several days, the issue eventually comes back. In fact, there are many random time when I get no alerts for important meetings. Other times I get alerts for meetings that I have declined!
I'm on a MacBook Pro with an Apple M1 Pro chip running Ventura 13.0.1.
I also use it on a Windows 10 HP laptop x86_64.
This was my experiece - after a few days, I couldn't dismiss any reminders.
I'm now on the current version (102.5.1 32bit) and can't dismiss anything at all - not even after a restart of Tbird. My calendar is linked to Fastmail, so it's not related to Google calendar.
I suppose we should remember that this is open source and those of us that don't contribute can't really complain that someone hadnn't fixed this if they are not being paid to do so. Though it is very frustating. John
I installed the 64-bit version omn T'bird and the calendar problems went away.
Search for instructions on where to get the download and install. It reused my existing accounts. Removed the 32bit version.
I had the same problem until today (using the ics format calendar).
I tried disabling the offline support and it works smoothly again. You can reinable it afterwards.
1) right click on the calendar (mine has the name of the Google email):
3) uncheck "offline support"
Also check for any unusued calendars. Example I had a "default" named one which was linked to a local calendar file I got exporting events from a software I used earlier. I disabled that too
This is also a problem for version 102.11.2 (64-bit) on OpenSuse (Tumbleweed) Linux but I'm astounded that IT IS STILL A PROBLEM at all! It's clearly widespread and a fairly high sev problem and there's not been a solution nor surprisingly any response from the development team, at the very least acknowledging it and offering some insight about its relative priority and difficulties. Come on guys, at least tell us something
Incidentally (and I don't know how relevant this might be) I killed the Thunderbird process. The dialogue was an orphan/zombie because the main window had disappeared. When I restarted Thunderbird, the dialogue returned but I could now Dismiss All successfully
