TB68: Invite attendee does not trigger reading freebusy information from calendar


(Calendar :: General, defect)

Lightning 68
Not set


(Not tracked)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open calendar tab and double click into any calendar (doesn't matter if local or caldav).
  2. Press "invite Attendees".

Actual results:

The Invite Attendees window pops up but does NOT read freebusy information.
The timeline bar shows "no information".
I need to click "next slot" or "zoom in" or "zoom out" to make freebusy information appear.

Expected results:

When "Invite Attendees" window pops up it should read freebusy information without any action needed.
In TB 60.8.0 this works as expected... the timeline bar shows free, tentative, etc. upon clicking "Invite Attendees" immediately.

This dialog must be a contender for worst UI in Thunderbird.

Can you please add the uplift request, since I won't be able to watch everything.

The code changes look good. No try run yet. I'm working on getting my esr68 build up and running (since I'll need that anyway for more bug fix testing and for porting prettier changes). Then I can test and start a try run.

I did a try run just to confirm that nothing else broke.  Looks fine.

When testing the patch I do see the free/busy information upon opening the dialog (and not the pink bar indicating no information).

I can confirm that this is fixed with TB from here...

But Geoff Lankow is right saying. "This dialog must be a contender for worst UI in Thunderbird.".
Now that this works I discovered other bad things in this dialog.
Should I open a new bug report or answer here, Jorg K?

New bug please, CC Geoff and me.
