I have recently updated my mail client Thunderbird to their latest release 3.0 and after installation most of my addons are not working. Out of them the most important one is “lightning” which i would like to be there in my thunderbird always.

Thunderbird have plans of integrating calender support in future releases but till then i find out a way to workout with this situation.

Following are the steps i followed to get lightning working in my thunderbird 3:

  1. Go to Tools —> Add-ons.
  2. Click on the “Get Add-ons” tab.
  3. Search for “Lightning” in the search bar.
  4. You will find “Lightning Nightly Updater (Unofficial)” in the search result.
  5. Go ahead and install it.
  6. Restart the thunderbird.
  7. After that go to Help —> Latest lightning Nightly Build.
  8. A window will pop up which will show you the latest nightly build which is available to install.
  9. Go ahead and install it.
  10. Restart the thunderbird.

That’s it. Have fun :)
