Steps to reproduce:

Add a Google Calendar using the private ICAL URL (Offline Support unchecked)
Edit the properties and disable Read Only, if checked

When alarms appear, click Dismiss All

Actual results:

Nothing visible (window stays open)

Error console shows:

Error: '<error>' when calling method: [calICalendar::modifyItem]
Source File: resource://calendar/modules/calUtils.jsm -> file:///home/jan/.thunderbird/yiyyagme.default/extensions/%7Be2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103%7D/calendar-js/calAlarmService.js
Line: 207

line 207 is:         return newParent.calendar.modifyItem(newParent, oldParent, null);

Window "An error has occurred" shows, with error MODIFICATION_FAILED

Expected results:

Alarm window should disappear and alarm be dismissed

Or - at least - some kind of usable error message should be found somewhere.

As reported on #667070, I have the same problem. But I doesn't get an error.

I onl get the error the first time. Then, the calendar gets set to Read-Only, and Dismissing is completely impossible (there is a bug report for that). To see the error again, I have to disable the Read-Only checkbox first.

Bug 667070 seems to be something different. It claims that alarms are deleted unexpectedly. My problem is that I can *not* dismiss the alarm. Also, I use ICAL instead of WebDAV (Google no longer supports WebDAV). When I used WebDAV, the problem did not occur.
