 This is still broken for my use case (Lightning plus "Exchange 2007/2010
 Calendar and Tasks Provider 3.1.3). Launching tb from a terminal, when you
 configure the calendar and either enter the settings manually, or select
 Exchange autodiscovery, then click on "Check server and mailbox" or "Perform
 autodiscovery", resp., the following errors are shown, resp.:

1st-setup: Error: Warning: Error during creation of erPrimarySMTPCheckRequest. Err=ReferenceError: erPrimarySMTPCheckRequest is not defined


1st-setup: Error: Warning: Could not create erAutoDiscoverRequest. Err=ReferenceError: erAutoDiscoverRequest is not defined

> 2. External http, https, and ftp Links may not work from thunderbird:

 This works, although I didn't try if it works without.
