Manual installation

Program is distributed as ZIP or 7 ZIP package: download to temporary directory and unpack to destination folder (delete files from previous versions). See below for download link(s) - calendar-timezones-2.2016c.xpi is a fix for Lightning integrated in Thunderbird ver. 38.8.0 beta 7.

  • Before starting the program, it is useful to set mozilla_home in Config.Sys file, to preserve profile and plugin directories and make program upgrades easier. For example:
    SET MOZILLA_HOME=C:\Apps\mozilla.org\
  • To run at the same time Thunderbird with Mozilla or Firefox, use Run!: copy RUN!.exe in Thunderbird's installation folder; rename it as thunderbird!L.exe and use this one to start the program.
  • You can load XUL.DLL in high memory using Highmem.
  • Find at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/language-tools/all the dictionaries and language packs for Thunderbird (select the language you want, then at the bottom of the page choose "Version information" and click on "See complete version history").
