Do you use Sunbird or Lightning? What version?
Currently I'm using Lightning 1.0pre (build 20090613030915) on nightly Thunderbird.
With Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20091130 Lightning/1.0b1pre Thunderbird/3.0 I see following behavior: The "New Task" button doesn't change immediately with the "calendar state". -> Confirmed NEW
I think the same problem concerns all the "new task" and "new event" buttons in the interface and every menu entries related to new task/event in main menu. The same issue happens with "new event" and "new task" command for calendar in read only mode or switched off as reported in bug 518112.
Although this is the older bug, bug 518112 has more details.
