I have linked my google calendar to Thunderbird 102 via the Caldav format.
After the update to 102 the calendar reminders cannot be Dismissed, neither Dismiss single reminder nor multiple.
Does anyone else have the same problem?
07-02-2022 08:00 AM
Same here. Short of deleting the event, it seems to be stuck.
07-06-2022 08:40 PM
Same here, so it is a bug they need to fix.
07-12-2022 02:09 PM
Same here. I can't acknowedge reminders in Thunderbird being brought up by my integrated google calender via caldav/v2 integration.

Seems to be less of a problem on the 102.0.1 release, at least on my portable version. The .2 release is in the wild for normal users.
07-12-2022 02:33 PM
I have had the problem in 102, 102.0.1 and 102.0.2. All the same.

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.

Has it been determined if this is a Thunderbird 102 bug or some other issue that was exposed with the move to version 102? If anyone has a work around or way to resolve the problem, please post it. Still have this annoying issue after upgrading to 102.0.3 using the 64 bit version.

I have the same problem with version 102.8.0

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?

Calendar problems persist in v102.1.0 x64. When it click dismiss all notifications, there's always one or two events that that just won't go away, until they've been dismissed a few times.
08-03-2022 06:26 PM
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.

Calendar problems persist in v102.8.0 x64
08-09-2022 04:17 PM
Why such a long delay?
08-10-2022 12:12 AM
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
08-21-2022 08:24 AM
Still a problem in 102.1.2. Mine won't go away. The last appointment reminder keeps reappearing every 20 minutes or so and at every startup on Win10.
08-21-2022 11:53 PM
And the Accept buttons on invitations do not work.
I keep getting invitations and cannot accept any of them.
Make Thunderbird work so we can use it. Make it a modern Email and Calendar client.
09-27-2022 12:17 AM
Try opening the message in a new window - you may have the buttons then to accept.

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.
08-30-2022 07:31 PM
Still a problem in 102.2.0 x64, not go away...
09-26-2022 02:23 PM
This is my biggest issue with Thunderbird and has been for quite some time.
10-22-2022 05:40 PM
Same as the previous. It's now nearing the end of October 2022, with no fix for this, un-be-liev-able !
I'm tired of being tired.. MS Office 2021 looks highly promising 😞
10-24-2022 09:30 AM
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.
10-24-2022 12:26 AM
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

The only solution I have found is to close Thunderbird and reopen it. Annoying.
01-10-2023 11:54 AM
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.
01-26-2023 11:16 AM
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

Same issue here, with 102.7.2.
Solve for someone without any manual intervention?
02-22-2023 02:40 PM
As of 102.8.0 the problem hasn't been fixed yet
04-04-2023 01:11 AM
In 102.9.0 (current in Ubuntu 22 right now) not fixed either.
05-10-2023 06:27 AM
Neither in 102.10.0 (Ubuntu 23)
05-15-2023 01:16 PM - edited 05-16-2023 04:47 AM
Finally this seems to be fixed in 102.11.0 (Ubuntu 23)! 🎉
Edit: Today same issue showed up, maybe I was not connected to the network for a second last time 😕
05-16-2023 12:27 AM
It does not work in Windows version
and it has been on and off for the past 10 years.
when I use outlook it just works all the time!
05-15-2023 02:04 PM
Now, if the reminders could appear BEFORE the event and not 20 to 30 minutes after it that would be nice too!
05-16-2023 04:47 AM
Ok, this problem I don't have...I usually collect them all 🙂
