Summary: Thunderbird crashes when I entered calendar's URL in the Location field → Thunderbird crashed when I entered calendar's URL in the Location field
I rather doubt that there is a CalDAV collection at the URI specified, though there likely is a DAV collection there: see discussion in bug 355270, of which I believe this is a dupe.
Doesn't crash for me using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US;
rv:1.9a2pre) Gecko/20070116 Calendar/0.6a1. I only see the following error in

Error: this.mPrompter.promptAuth is not a function

Attached patch use nsIAuthPrompt2 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
egads. that mPrompter business *is* a bug which I would swear wasn't there last week; this fixes it. While the patch addresses the problem mentioned in comment #3, I believe it to be unrelated to the initial bug report.

(In reply to comment #4)
nsIAuthPrompt2 does not seem to exist on mozilla1.8.0 and mozilla1.8 branch, that means it won't work with Thunderbird 1.5, Thunderbird 2.0 or Sunbird 0.4a1.
True, nsIAuthPrompt2 does not exist on branch. But neither does promptAuth, so the code in question won't get called on branch. Patch tested with both current Sb/trunk and Sb/branch.

add comment per r1

Why does mPrompter2 need to be saved on the object with |this.|?  Why not just use a regular variable?
Attached patch use var not thisSplinter Review
Right you are. Thanks.

use var not this

the variable needs to be renamed, since it's not a part of the object anymore.  (m- is reserved for that case.)  r2=jminta with that.

Patch (with var name changed) checked in on MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH and trunk.
