Description User image Michal Kaut 2007-10-16 12:52:46 PDT
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070914 Firefox/
Build Identifier: both Sunbird 0.5 and Lightning 0.5 

An attempt to create a new event in a public calendar posted on causes the following:
- all calendar events disappear once one changes the view (month etc)
- the calendars won't reload (possibly related to 386326 bug?)
- Thunderbird and/or Sunbird process does not terminate after closing the application (could be related to the 378578 bug?)

The problem appeared perhaps a month ago, can't say exactly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Subscribe to a previously created .ics calendar posted as "public" on 
2. Add an event to the calendar in Lightning or Sunbird
3. Change a month/week one step forward and back
Actual Results:  
All events disappear (even local calendars), calendars won't reload.
In addition, closing the application won't terminate the process.

Expected Results:  
Nothing visible, once the event has been added.

The error message is as follows:
Error: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE) [nsIHttpChannel.requestSucceeded]"  nsresult: "0x80040111 (NS_ERROR_NOT_AVAILABLE)"  location: "JS frame :: file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/kaut/Application%20Data/Thunderbird/Profiles/wycapb3b.default/extensions/%7Be2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103%7D/components/calICSCalendar.js :: anonymous :: line 383"  data: no]

Line: 383

My guess: iCalX public calendars do not need password for subscribe and read, but need one for writing. Calendar gets confused by being able to subscribe and load the calendar without a password ... just a guess
It works with private calendars, i.e. calendars with password for both read and write.

It is, of course, possible that the error is on the iCalX side...

But you cannot add an event to public calendar. It can only be viewed or subscribed
