Excellent addon, but it no longer works.

Tried installing it today on Thunderbird 68.4.1. The addon installs but when adding a gmail account you get the error:

"Sign in with Google temporarily disabled for this app. This app has not been verified yet by Google in order to use Google Sign In."

I submitted gContactSync for verification several months ago. They claim it takes 4-6 weeks but it's been twice that. Unfortunately there's nothing I can do at this point...

Works great, using version 3.1.7 with Thunderbird 68.2.2.

This app greatly helps with managing your Google contacts and syncing them into TB. I manage all my contacts in Google and use this add-on to access them (read-only) from TB. It really helps to manage contacts across places you have TB installed. The add-on just needs to be updated for the latest TB.

I used your addon since several years.
Version 3.1.7 doesn't work with TB 68 and above (now I have 68.1.2).
It doesn't sync anything. Trying to modify account settings, it doesn't "keep in mind" the settings that I save (groups of contacts of address book, and/or the name of my account).
(cookies already allowed in TB)
It is a BIG problem! it doesn't exist any addon else than yours to sync Google contacts!
Please update gContact!

Didn't work for me. About 2/3 or more of my contacts are imported with email addresses like: <[email protected]> where XXXX... is a long string of random numbers & letters.

Dear Sir,

In Thunderbird 68.1.0 Error Coming As Mozilla Change the Policy for Addon from install.rdf to manifest.json

Your Addon is incompatible with Thunderbird 68.1.0

Requesting you Please Update your Valuable Addon.

gContactSync has supported TB 68 for some time now. Please make sure you are using version 3.1.7 or later.

I have used it for a couple of years on two computers. Everything works, no problems. I don't have photos in my address books, so can't say if they work.

Either broken, or has confusing text: In read-only mode intends to delete 278 contacts from Google. WTF?!

FYI, there are at least two bugs regarding contact photos, which may be nits to some. I like having photos for every contact, especially on my phone, as it allows me to see who's calling or whom I'm writing to at a glance.

1) I installed gContactSync on Thunderbird 60.6.1 (32-bit) for Windows and configured it for R/O mode.

Upon initial sync everything looked great, including all photos... Awesome! But, a few days later I noticed some contact photos were mysteriously disappearing from both my phone and Google. There seemed to be no rhyme or reason to which ones, it was occurring randomly.

To isolate the cause:
- Disabled this Add-on.
- Restored the missing photos using the Contacts app on my phone (Google Pixel 3, running the latest build of Pie).
- Verified Google Contacts was updating accordingly.

After which all has remained well, so I think it clearly points to a bug in this Add-on. Thankfully, no contact data seems to be missing (as far as I've been able to tell), just photos.

2) I installed gContactSync on Thunderbird 60.6.1 (64-bit) for Linux (Fedora) and configured it for R/O mode.

Upon initial sync, some photos appear in the TBird address book, while others are missing. This occurs immediately, and is also random.

I wouldn't be too concerned about these issues in the TBird address book, but since I have gContactSync in R/O mode it obviously shouldn't be deleting data in Google Contacts (and therefore, in my phone as well after it syncs).

This would be the perfect Add-on for me, but I can't use it until there's a fix for these problems.

Incorrectly syncs contact group content. When I create in GC group and add contacts to it, synchrinization to TB is fine. In TB, a group is created and contains contacts. Not the other way around. When I create a group in TB and add contacts to it, a group is created in GC but is empty. There is no contact.

In Thunderdird 66.0b3 (64-bit) with this addon enabled mails with assigned labels are not colored.
When you deactivate the addons you see the colored emails with their labels, it is a "visual" error.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.4). 

Fixed in version 3.1.5.
Thanks for letting me know, but please use github (https://github.com/jdgeenen/gcontactsync/issues) or the forum (http://pirules.org/forum/index.php) for reporting issues in the future since they allow a better dialog between us.
