Google calendar always opens on event from 3 months ago; can't delete

Posted

Event was originally imported from a third party (Eventbrite, or similar) to .edu college email. Every time I launch the Google calendar page, it opens on the event itself from June. I've tried discarding, deleting, removing all guests, going to Agenda view and deleting, doing the hokey pokey and turning all around--nothing has worked. The event keeps resurrecting with each new launch.

This only happens with Firefox (40.0.3) on my Mac Airbook OSX 10.9.5; when I use Chrome or other browsers, the Google calendar functions normally. All is normal when using PCs and other computers.

Unfortunately, this also affects my personal calendar, as I must share my .edu calendar events to my own personal calendar to synchronize schedules.

Please provide steps to clear this event from both calendars. Thank you.
