Thunderbird is STILL asking for a google calendar login

Posted

Thunderbird keeps asking me to log in to a Google Calendar account, which we don't want or need. The user (not me, fwiw) stopped using T-Bird to check gmail accounts and removed all of those accounts, there was still a calendar subscription from the gmail account that we're getting prompts for, but I disabled that and then this morning there was another prompt to log in to the google account.

I've read a ton of questions including these:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1130194 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/988520

And they all assume that the user wants a Google connection. There's no way to say "no, we don't want a google connection at all"

Chosen solution

Besides removing the gmail mail accounts, did you remove any Google calendars, and any add-ons such as gContactSync or Provider for Google calendar? There could be other Google-related add-ons, e.g. GHub, but launching in safe mode (Help/Restart with Add-ons Disabled) will quickly rule out add-ons or calendars being the source of the login prompt.

We had removed the google calendar, but it looks like Provider for Google Calendar and Google Calendar Tab were both installed. Removed both and that seems to have shushed the alert.
