The latest upgrade to Thunderbird (to 60.3.0) has had odd effects on Lightning. All my events for the next few months had vanished this morning; fortunately closing and restarting Tb brought them back, but I really don't like this flakiness.

The annoying problem is that it's changed the view so that the week starts on Monday. I prefer a Sunday-Saturday week, and my paper calendar is in that format, so my Lightning and paper calendars are now formatted differently, which is a pain.
The long "What's New" page of the latest Tb actually shows changing the week-order view -- but I can't find any way of doing that in any of the options in either Tb or Lightning. There used to be, of course, because that's how I set it in the first place, but there isn't now.
Can anyone help?

I have no idea about your first problem. Hopefully it was a fluke and should be OK.

For the second issue, it is related to the fact that between TB 52 and 60, some work was done on Thunderbird and Lightning so it conforms by default to your system preferences. So if you are in continental Europe (or if you did some wrong handling), it's likely that your preference was changed.. Long story short, to change it back, do the following.

– Press on ALT to display full menus, then select Tools –> Options
– Select Calendar, then Vues.
– First element will be the first day of the week. Select Sunday.

Good luck.

Thanks, Michel -- that worked!

Tb and Lightning are still being a bit flaky -- I had to close and relaunch Tb again just now to get events to show in Lightning -- but at least one problem is solved!

Similar problem.

At each start I have to do the above Lightning does not keep my choice as default, it changes to Monday
