Hi, I'm a longtime user of Thunderbird/Lightning. The recent inability to write to google calendar is a game-ender for me, and I imagine others. Can anyone recommend a workaround for this? I have not been able to find any solutions. I need to be able to accept calendar invites and be able to modify google calendar from Thunderbird.

Please resolve the continuing issues with Thunderbird read/write access for gmail. Every time I see a supposed fix advertised I attempt the fix and it appears to work for one or two times of cycling thunderbird then thunderbird locks up my entire laptop. It takes a few hours to reconfigure thunderbird calendar so that I can continue to use thunderbird just for email. This is extremely frustrating.

Please, if there really is a way successfully to add gmail to thunderbird, will someone who really knows publish succinct, step-by-step instructions.

Using Thunderbird 78.6.1 (64-bit)
Sync Problem Work-Around:
If you click the hide/unhide button twice and then the syncing is working again.
Where exactly is that button?
On left column of thunderbird calendar page
- click on Calendar to open list of accounts
- find the one not syncing
- move cursor behind it till you see an eye
(under the + sign)
- click it twice (hide/unhide)
Your calendar entries should be visible again !


This is a work-around because you will have to repeat it each time when you open the calendar.

It's too bad this previously effective add-on has stopped working for a lot of us. Like many, my Google calendars no longer display when TB launches. I've tried many fixes that work for a while, but eventually stop. I finally gave up! Now, I use CalDAV to sync my Google calendars to TB's Lightning calendar and it works very well. There is no add-on to install. It requires a bit more setup, but it's easy. If you want to try it, follow these steps:

1. Unsubscribe to your existing calendars and uninstall Provider,
2. restart TB,
3. open the Lightning calendar,
4. right-click in Calendar pane and select "New Calendar",
5. select "On the Network",
6. select "CalDAV", enter your GMail user name (email address if that's your user name) in User field; enter a URL (see below) for your calendar in the location field, and; leave "On-Line Support" checked if you want the calendar to work if you are off line,
7. name the calendar and select its color; check "Show Reminders", and; select your GMail address,
8. sign-in to Google and give Lightning permission to access your calendar,
9. a confirmation that your calendar has been created should appear, and
10. click "Finish".

The URL for step 6, above, is https://apidata.googleusercontent.com/caldav/v2/calid/events
where you must replace "calid" with the "calendar ID" of the calendar you want to access. The calendar ID for your primary calendar is your email address. If you have other calendars, sign in to your Google calendar through a web browser. Click the "more" menu (three dots) next to the calendar's name and select "Settings and sharing". On the next page, the calendar ID is shown in the section called "Integrate Calendar".

Works with TB 78.6.0 in both direction.
But I had to fiddle some hours in a TB version before (think, it was TB 78.4 or so), since then, it works.

As far as I remember, I had to cleanup TB cache

Then in a window in TB enter my Google credentials (and not click anything else while doing this, otherwise TB didn't remember my credentials correctly, maybe it forks to Firefox) and authorize the Provider as third party app (see https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/3466521?hl=en).

Habe gerade das Addon erstmalig mit TB 78.6.1 64Bit ausprobiert. Hat auf anhieb geklappt den Google Kalender nun endlich in Thunderbird zu bekommen. Wenn es bei jemandem nicht funktioniert habt ihr eventuell die Google Settings falsch eingestellt und der Zugang wird nicht erlaubt. Dann müsst ihr den Drittanbieter Zugriff erlauben: Drittanbieter-Apps mit Kontozugriff

I have Thunderbird 78.6.0 installed. This extension doesn't work properly. I can connect google calendar but it doesn't synchronize, and if by any luck it shows my items in calendar, they disappear after I close Thunderbird.

not syncronising, just displaying

Waardering 3 van 5 sterren

It´s good, but it´s not working at 100%

Adding / editing / deleting events in google calendar works, but it won´t add event from an email because: "No writable calendars are configured for invitations..."

I would highly appreciate this feature because that´s main reason I wanted to try this addon.

If someone can help me with this, it would be great.

Version 78.0.1 (just installed on a fresh new Thunderbird installation) :

Unlike what others say, it does NOT work with Thunderbird 78.6.0. More exactly;
- display the google agenda works
- adding a received invitation DOES NOT work : message "No writable calendars are configured for invitations"
- adding participants to a new meeting DOES NOT work, after the event is saved and closed they are not saved nor do they receive a notification.

It was the best google agenda provider but it is broken for months now since recent releases of thunderbird 78.

So I tried to use Provider for CALDAV, it is a little harder to setup since one must find the URL of the Google agenda, but it works.

The URL is https://apidata.googleusercontent.com/caldav/v2/yourID/events where 'yourID' is the calendar ID given by google in the agenda settings.

Now working perfectly with version 78.6

For months, I had suffered the frustration along with many others regarding this superb add on's incompatibility, but can happily report that now it functions absolutely fine with the latest Thunderbird update.

used to work great until thunderbird updated, now it doesn't auto sync, every time I start Thunderbird I have to click the hide /show icon next to the particular calendar. Uninstalling /reinstalling to latest version doesn't make any difference, also seem very slow to sync when I add a new entry, I get the rotating circle for about 30 seconds while it updates.

- Restart Thunderbird.
- Reinstall the add-on Provider for Google Calendar.
- Boom!

Adding invitees to calendar events still does not work. Been an issue now for over a month. Report issues at Github, not here. Once this fix is complete, this is a 5-star app.

This add-in continues to lose sync with my Google Calendar. When will this get fixed?

Ce module est capital et très pratique! MERCI
Mais depuis la mise à jour de mozilla, impossible d'envoyer des invitations, c'est très pénible!
