It's often useful to look at both an email and a week or month view of the calendar.  This would be easily done with a separate toplevel window showing the same stuff that's in the current calendar "mode".

I too would like to see Lightning able to open in a separate top level window.  I have been using Thunderbird with the Lightning Calendar Extension for half a year now, and it is works really well, however I find often that I would like to look at the calendar but have to first click through the email part of thunderbird.  This takes time which makes me more hesitant to view the calendar than if I was able to click straight to it.  It would be great if it could be separate like Sunbird but with the same capability to sync with Thunderbird and emails. 
Since we mvoed to tabs, I think this bug is obsolete. It should be no problem to open a second mail window that also has a calendar tab.

David, can we close this bug?
totally.  I'll even mark it FIXED as it's now doable, even if we did nothing specifically to address this bug.

i am looking to migrate from sunbird, since 1.0b1 is the last release for it. my current workflow includes having thunderbird open on top monitor, portrait mode, sunbird open on laptop screen, landscape mode.

i am seeing no way to open a new separate window in thunderbird 3.0.4 for putting a single lightning tab in there. this makes me think this bug is not actually fixed.

any clues from someone brighter about this?

well, kind souls on #thunderbird pointed out that right-clicking on folder and selecting "Open" actually opens a new toplevel window. this apparently never occurred to me to try, because "Open in new tab" is spelled out. In my mind "Open" = "Open in current tab" = ordinary left-click duplicator = no reason to try...

now i have a separate window for the calendar, but apparently this window layout is not persisted across thunderbird sessions? i quit thunderbird, re-open it, and again only have 1 toplevel window with mail. is toplevel window layout persistence supposed to exist?

I believe not, but in any case this is a thunderbird bug.
I can right-click my calendar tab and open it in a new window, but this window also contains a tab with the usualy mail stuff. Why can't the two be separated?
