Thunderbird Timezone error

JG

For the past couple of months, I've been receiving a timezone error pop up in Thunderbird that seems to point at todoist. Here's an example of the error from the Thunderbird error console with some info redacted (XXXXX):

[JavaScript Error: "Unknown timezone "GMT -08:00" in "XXXXXX". Treated as 'floating' local timezone instead: November 11, 2013 10:00 AM
BEGIN:VCALENDAR
PRODID:-//Mozilla.org/NONSGML Mozilla Calendar V1.1//EN
VERSION:2.0
BEGIN:VEVENT
SUMMARY:XXXXXX
DTSTART;TZID="GMT -08:00":20131111T100000
DTEND;TZID="GMT -08:00":20131111T110000
DESCRIPTION:Project: XXXXX\n\nComplete this item: \nhttp://todoist.com/#proj
ect/100111426
END:VEVENT
END:VCALENDAR
"]

This seems to be affecting recurring appointments only. Editing the tasks with a new recurring time did not resolve the problem.

Hi,

Do you have our iCal Feed added to the calendar options within Thunderbird, or are you just using our extension?

Which version of Thunderbird are you running? If you are using the iCal feed, please try removing it, and re-adding it.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Yes! I did have an iCal feed that I had forgotten about. Though it wasn't active, it was apparently causing the error. Removing it resolved the issue. Thank you!

For future reference, yes also using the Todoist extension for Thunderbird. Thunderbird version 24.1.0
