leaves calendar files in non-working state, even when downgrading back to

Expected Results:

Only options available when right-clicking the Calendar section are "Find" and "Export".  Everything else is greyed out, so not even able to fix it from thunderbird.  Only workaround is to restore profile directory from backup and restart using
What Lightning version do you use? Lightning will not upgrade itself if you update the Thunderbird version. Or do you use a custom lightning build provided by your linux distribution?

This is using Lightning release 0.9 which looks like the latest.

I've removed Lightning version 0.9 add-on and then reinstalled.  This seems to be a work-around.
Resolving as worksforme per previous comment. 
Maybe something during the Thunderbird update messed up the data.
