Facebook calendar syncs events for every day even when they are gone in last month.

In other words events won't disappear they just drag along in the calendar

I think this is different. I also have items that i have responded, but their dates are completely wrong in Sailfish calendar. For example events that are only single day in FB are shown spanning for 2 weeks every day in Sailfish calendar. I have resynced the calendar with latest Sailfish release, but this does not seem to help.

I can confirm this. If a Facebook event is an all-day event, i.e. it doesn't have a starting time (and ending time) set, the events shows up in Jolla calendar as a several day event. In my case, for one week. I have right now a Facebook event in the calendar which is (was) actually a whole day event on 17th of May. It shows up in Jolla calendar as 17th - 23rd of May, starting at 03:00 am, and ending at 03:00 am. Seems very familiar with the already fixed bug Google calendar sync used to have with all day events.

Also, my all-day events on Exchange sync will show up falsely as two day events now, like Google Calendar all-day events used to.

I have Sziget festival in my calendar which, according to my phone, starts on august 11th (correct) but ends on november 9th :P It does not happen with all events, though, and I actively rejected one I had this issue with before, and it did disappear, contrary to what the linked question in the first comment says.

I have also declined the event that I have showing up incorrectly (which I described above), and it didn't disappear, it's still visible in the phone calendar.
