I would like to be able to run the Mozilla Calendar in the system tray. This way, I don't need the full interface running, even though it is available. Also, it allows the alarms to work, even if the Calendar isn't "open".
Can you please provide more information about what you mean by "run mozilla calendar"? What exactly do you want to do? Obviously there's some functionality that needs to be viewable. I would suggest having today's events, and a link to make a new event, be available from the taskbar.
The drawback to many PIM/calendar programs is that they have to be running for alarms to work. I would like the ability to either as a separate app or something have the calendar run in the background so that when alarms need to be sounded, I will hear them. In the case of a sytem tray icon being used, it could also popup a small window like the various Windows XP apps do when they have a message to give. Another option is to run the alarm signalling part of the calendar as a service. I don't know how well these ideas will work for other OS's, but that is the drawback of most calendar apps, you can set alarms but they are ineffective since you don't run Mozilla all the time.
dup of bug 134969 or vica versa. I favor a standalone small app to do checking when mozilla is not in memory or calendar/mailnews windows are not open, as discussed in bug 11056.
This does look like a possible duplicate of bug 134696.
