I think a lot of people use these two:

https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/calendar/
https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/th ... -calendar/

Not a clue if those can be found, just providing the links so you know what I mean ;)

Looks like Debian has a working xul-ext-firetray upstream, do you want to build that?
xul-ext-firetray_0.6.1+dfsg-1.2 is now in test.

I just noticed that firetray icon may not appear in notification area at first launch. Shutting down TB and start again solves the problem.

thunderbird-60.3.1 is now available from test if anybody wants to try it out.

Check out what's been fixed in this release.

You must have a Thunderbird directly from Mozilla, then. We switched to rebuilding from upstream Debian source for MX 17 a few months ago to solve langpack problems, and are now dependent on when they get those new versions upstream.

Are things with the extensions sorted out, or?

I upgrade by installing the update and then moving the backed up .thunderbird folder over to my /home/username/ folder, but haven't dared to as I am afraid stuff breaks.
