I'm seeing this too, on Linux. Calendar list is empty, all events are there, but displayed on white background instead of their respective *.ics calendars' colours. (I use several local *.ics files outside my profile, one read-only on the Web, no implicit "default" calendar.)

Displaying an event's properties shows the appropriate calendar's name, but the calendar itself cannot be accessed.

Yesterday's nightly didn't have the problem.

Error console contains the following immediately after startup:

Error: setting a property that has only a getter
Source File: chrome://calendar/content/calendar-task-tree.xml
Line: 1049
--- (20 times, two at a time, with Javascript errors in between)

Error: [Exception... "'[JavaScript Error: "setting a property that has only a getter" {file: "chrome://calendar/content/calendar-task-tree.xml" line: 1049}]' when calling method: [calIOperationListener::onOperationComplete]"  nsresult: "0x80570021 (NS_ERROR_XPC_JAVASCRIPT_ERROR_WITH_DETAILS)"  location: "JS frame :: file:///usr/local/sunbird/components/calCompositeCalendar.js :: anonymous :: line 550"  data: yes]
--- (11 times, each of them except the last [in First > Last order] immediately after two of the above)

If this is a different bug, please say so in a comment and set the platform back to Windows, I'll register a Linux bug in that case.

This is a no-go for me, I'm going back to yesterday's nightly until it's fixed.

The problem is somewhere in the refactoring of loadCalendarManager() and initHomeCalendar() in calendar-management.js that was done in Bug 475715.

I added |let calMgr = getCalendarManager();| to initHomeCalendar() to run into the following error: "composite is not defined".

I added |let composite = getCompositeCalendar();| to initHomeCalendar() to run into the following exception: "Calendar list has no composite calendar yet".

See also Bug 479316 for the 'setting a property that has only a getter' error. I only observed the error in a 1.9.2 but not 1.9.1 build. Maybe you could drop a note if it happens in a nightly build too.
In reply to comment #4:
Comment #2 is about the Linux build downloaded a few minutes before the comment was posted, from Its UA string was copied from Help=>About to the clipboard, then pasted from there at the top of the comment. AFAIK, there are no Calendar builds based on Gecko 1.9.2 on the Mozilla site yet. (I don't have the facilities or the know-how to compile Mozilla applications locally.)
