Transparent calender items in Thunderbird

I am not the only person with this problem:
Something calendar entries in Lightning register as status Tentative and it shows in a different transparent shade of the calendar color. I can manually change the status to confirmed directly in lightning however that is a pain. Plus, it sounds crazy but having these entries a different shade/color drives me nuts.

Now see: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2318957 for a way to deal with this… except of course, it is not the complete solution and only works after a slight modification. So what to do:

for a way to deal with this… except of course, it is not the complete solution and only works after a slight modification. So what to do:

Add following css code to your userChrome.css file, mostly found at C:\Users\»your username«\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\»some random letters«\chrome
If last folder and/or userChrome.css don’t exist, just create them.

Edit the file and add the following content:

calendar-event-box[invitation-status="TENTATIVE"],
calendar-editable-item[invitation-status="TENTATIVE"],
calendar-month-day-box-item[invitation-status="TENTATIVE"],
calendar-event-box[status="TENTATIVE"],
calendar-editable-item[status="TENTATIVE"],
calendar-month-day-box-item[status="TENTATIVE"],
agenda-richlist-item[status="TENTATIVE"],
agenda-richlist-item[invitation-status="TENTATIVE"] {
opacity: 1 !important;
}

That’s all folks! Good luck!

The Internet is an increasingly complex place, not just in terms of services but also from a technical standpoint, especially with the advent of mobile devices over the past few years.

Everything that happens on the web, from browsing, streaming and messaging to file sharing, downloads and, more recently, backups, is based on protocols that have long started to show their age.

Efforts from Internet giants like Google and Microsoft are aimed at improving the situation, but given the slow rate of standardization and adoption of new protocols (or even extensions to existing protocols), it looks like the process will take a long time.

Email is one of the oldest Internet-based conveniences, just like most of the protocols used to make it all happen: SMTP, POP3 and IMAP. Today we’ll deal with IMAP, which is currently at version 4 revision 1, as standardized by the 12-year-old RFC 3501. Continue reading Thunderbird
