Adding Calendars from Gmail

I got a new computer (Windows 10) and downloaded TB 78.0.1. I went to add the calendars from Gmail accounts, but the process for doing so appears to have changed. Search results in Help and via Google refer to earlier TB versions.

To add a network calendar on a network, it must be in either iCalendar or CalDAV format. A location is then required. Old instructions indicate that my email address should be added here, but the system said it was a bad location.

How do I add my calendars?

Chosen solution

There is. You can use the TbSync add-on or the workaround discussed in the comments here https://github.com/kewisch/gdata-provider/issues/77

Uninstall v78 then install v68 from here https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/68.11.0/ and follow those instructions.

Is there a solution that doesn't involve uninstalling/reinstalling?

Annoyed that V78 didn't include Google Calendar synch, so I uninstalled it. But now cannot install any version as it keeps wanting me to re-boot to complete the uninstall. Any helpful suggestions?

So, have you rebooted as prompted?

Yes, repeatedly.

Perform a clean re-installation by deleting the Mozilla Thunderbird installation folder from the following locations:

  • C:\Program Files
  • C:\Program Files (x86)

Reboot, then install the version you want.

Thank You! That was the problem.
