Steps to reproduce:

I'm using an ICS calendar that defines categories for certain events.
Events can have multiple categories.
I also setup colors for some of these calendar categories.

Actual results:

The event always displays the color of the first category in the ICS event.
If the first category doesn't have a color (it is effectively not known to Thunderbird) the calendar will display no color at all, ignoring later categories that have a color associated.

Expected results:

The calendar should show the color of the first category that has a color defined, ignoring unknown categories.

Ultimately a tool to hide certain categories or show multiple categories would be really useful too, but just showing the first one with a color would be enough for now.
