Mozilla Thunderbird+Lightning/Sunbird Errors

On 11/25 I updated my Fedora 12 laptop and received updates for Mozilla Thunderbird and the Lightning plugin as well as Mozilla Sunbird. My new versions are

Thunderbird: 3.0-3.12.rc1.fc12
Thunderbird-Lightning: 1.0-0.14.20090916hg.fc12
Sunbird: 1.0-0.14.20090916hg.fc12

All of these are from the Fedora-Updates-Testing repos. (I know, that's my fault for having them enabled. I will disable them as soon as I get a new working version or a fix.) But when I restarted these applications, I received the error

Error Code: 0x80004005
Description: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [mozIStorageStatement.reset]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: file:///usr/lib64/thunderbird-3.0/extensions/%7Be2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103%7D/modules/calStorageUpgrade.jsm :: ensureUpdatedTimezones :: line 380" data: no]

I can close out all of these errors, however, my Lightning and Sunbird apps don't load the calendars or the tasks that I have stored. So, what did I do, but go and Google this problem. On

On https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=529853 I see some useful info. By https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=529853#c18 (Comment 18) I see a fix in the form of the attachment posted. How in the world do I do this fix? I downloaded it and tried to install it as a plugin That didn't work.

Any ideas or suggestions. I really don't want to go back to Kontact.

mv .thunderbird/ .thunderbird-backup/ (just in case)

and then restarted Thunderbird (using the current RC2). I imported from my backup and all seems to work. It just sucks that I lost about two weeks of calendaring.


p.s. Same fix worked for Sunbird.

I had a similar issue with F12 and thunderbird 3.0
I just decided to use Lightning and installed it from the repository via yum.

When I opened Thunderbird I got the NS_ERROR_FAILURE message described above, but also noticed that my local.sqlite database reported zero bytes, meaning it was unable to create the calendar database.

After googling a bit, I found that the following files are used by Lightning and deleted them:
When I reopened Thunderbird, it was able to create a new calendar as expected.

Don't do this if you already have a calendar with data.
