But i cant even get to base #1. On the tools .. there is no "Add-on Options " Just add-ons.. if i go toy TBsync further down i get the TBsync settings but assuming i add accounts here ( like Google) nothing shows.. go to add accounts and only get options for CalDav Card Dav , exchange. seems a bit bland on info here would have thought The menu would appear with google options too chris

I just installed the addon, I notice I have a "Synchronization settings (TBSync) So I guess it is there you have to go.

Oh, I tried looking at the instructions the author posted on the addon support site. https://github.com/jobisoft/TbSync/wiki/How-to-get-started

Thunderbird 78 does not have an add-on options as that was only in existence because addons lost the ability to place their options elsewhere in Thunderbird 68. That has obviously now been restored.
