Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open Thunderbird.
  2. Import an .ics file that contains a COMMENT field in an event. Example .ics content:
    BEGIN:VCALENDAR
    METHOD:REPLY
    PRODID:Microsoft Exchange Server 2010
    VERSION:2.0
    BEGIN:VTIMEZONE
    TZID:GMT Standard Time
    BEGIN:STANDARD
    DTSTART:16010101T020000
    TZOFFSETFROM:+0100
    TZOFFSETTO:+0000
    RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;INTERVAL=1;BYDAY=-1SU;BYMONTH=10
    END:STANDARD
    BEGIN:DAYLIGHT
    DTSTART:16010101T010000
    TZOFFSETFROM:+0000
    TZOFFSETTO:+0100
    RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;INTERVAL=1;BYDAY=-1SU;BYMONTH=3
    END:DAYLIGHT
    END:VTIMEZONE
    BEGIN:VEVENT

    END:VCALENDAR

Actual results:

The COMMENT part from the .ics file is not displayed in the event details within Thunderbird.

Expected results:

The COMMENT part from the .ics file should be read and displayed as part of the event details in Thunderbird, allowing users to see any additional comments or notes associated with the event.

I am eager to implement this change myself and contribute to the main branch, but I need some assistance. I have reviewed the guide at Thunderbird Development, but I find the codebase too complex to confidently make and test changes without potentially breaking things.

Comment is specified in rfc2445 (https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2445.txt page 80) so I hope we can implement this to Thunderbird.
