This is a tracking bug for Alarms, section 1.0 of the Calendar Requirements Document.
Bugspam: Adding meta keyword to tracking bugs, something they should have had from the start. :P
on Win 2K (french)/ Mozilla 1.0 i only get the alarm fired when i add/remove an event. Even if i let the calendar always open. Even with the last calendar build. 31/07/2002 I can make deeper test, juste send my a step-by-step instruction. -- firstname.lastname@example.org

For ease of use and slower PCs I would like a feature in Mozilla, that loads "startup notification modules". It would be very userfriendly and an advantage to outlook, if you had a little startup program for the taskbar, that is not a quicklaunch, but just a notificator for events. I thought of something similiar to the email notification in NS4. When starting it, one should think about not providing just a notification tool for calendar, but a basis for other notificators, that can be enabled, or disabled. In this way you would have one tray icon that notifies you about e.g. calendar events and email open for others to program their own modules that could be used instead of the default Mozilla notificators.
RE comment #2: I just filed a detailed bug on this open issue. Bug 177279: Alarms don't fire under certain (very common) conditions

Mozilla 1.3, Calendar 0.8 (2003033112): I have 2 events with alarms in my Calendar: one for April 23rd at 17:05 (which went off as expected) and one for May 2nd (today) at 17:25 with the alarm set for 1 minute before. Today's alarm never fired, even though Moz + Calendar were running, BUT every time I add, update or remove an event, I receive an alarm for the April 23rd event: Calendar Event Alarm Went Off! ---------------------------- Title: at 2003/04/23 17:05:00 This message sent to you from the Mozilla Calendar. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/ (I get the same behaviour with same calendar XPI on moz 1.4a.) Back on moz 1.3, I just deleted the April 23rd event; now that event no longer fires (of course), but today's event still hasn't fired either. Then I tried adding another event for today: 17:45 with alarm 1 minute before; still no alarm fired.
I think Comment #4 is a good addition to the email notification biff.. So Calendar doesnt have to stay open
Summary: Alarms tracking bug (Calendar Requirements Document, section 1.0) → Alarms tracking bug (Calendar Requirements Document, section 2)
Option for no popup alarm when email alarm configured.
Option for no proir-year alarms for birthdays with event dates in years prior to current.
The Calendar rocks, watching the bug because I really need the thing to Alarm (pop up and/or e-mail notify) when the program is closed down. Keep up the good work!
Chris, just for reference, by program do you mean Suite (seamonkey), Firefox/Thunderbird, or Sunbird? And if windows, does mozilla reside in your task-tray when no windows are open?
Maybe it's wrong here, but I will give it a try. I tried to switch to Mozilla 1.7 (it's release candidates) and installed the calendar. However, since then no alarm bothered me again. Nice feature, but probably not intended. Finally, I went back Mozilla 1.6 with the old calendar since I am missing too many meetings. I am running mozilla under RedHat 8.0.
Upgraded today to mozilla 1.7 and installed the calendar from the nightly build of 2004-06-17. Great, the alarm seems to work again in this version.
Adding enhancement request for Bug #220694 to the requirement sections for Alarms. Added as dependency.
Depends on: 220694
I get the same behaviour in the last sunbird build (and previous versions too). It seems that this bug happens after the computer (I use a dell d600 laptop) returns from a suspend. Sometimes it takes more than one suspend for it to happen.

This is a big one IMO! I think that's one of the reasons why Mozilla Calendar is installed as an XPI of Firefox, so that you can get notifications even if you don't open up the Mozilla Calendar program. Please include this ASAP! This is my only issue with it! Thanks!
How about a little 'bell' icon in the block of an alarmed event in the week/day/month view of the calender for prettyness sake and to let you know which events you've alarmed or not?
I would like to add a suggestion to this particular section of the Calendar. How about a common event database directory? Example: I've created an event in the Mozilla Firefox extention, but I can't see that event if I'm using the Thunderbird extention.
We don't need this tracking bug, because the underlying requirement document is outdated and has therefore been removed.
