Good Morning! I installed Thunderbird Beta version 85, which in its release says "Address book: Added support for OAuth2 CardDAV providers".

As Google also reported that it implemented CardDav, and then I understood that when setting up my google account on Thunderbird Beta version 85, it would also import my contacts, in addition to email messages.

Did I get it wrong, or do I have to execute a specific command / procedure for importing contacts from my google account?

I used the gContactSync extension before, but it stopped working after version 73.

Please ask for help, to import my contacts. Thank you very much, Luciano

Since my Thunderbird updated to 91.2.1 today, provider for google calander (91.0.2) asked me to log in to google account again but returns Error 403: rate_limit_exceeded.

I'm also really annoyed that somehow automatic updates have been switched on without me knowing. I've had them disabled for ages and was getting prompts to update. If I'd have know a major change was coming, and been prompted, I'd have waited.

I can add an event in Google's calendar (usually with my Pixel), and the event gets copied to Thunderbird's calendar (2 times?). However, if I add an event in Thunderbird's calendar is does not get copied to Google's calendar (nor to my Pixel). I have 3 Add-ons installed: Provider for CalDav & CardDav, Provider for Google Calendar & TBSync. I'm running Thunderbird 78.2.2 on a Win X system.

Thanks for assistance.

Hi,

I used TB Sync and Provider Exchange Active Snyc to sync my calendar with my business exchange account (unfortunately my institution insists on using MS exchange). My system is Ubuntu 20.04 LTS 64 bit. That worked well until Thunderbird made its update to 78.7.1. Now, exchange is does just not sync any more (but my private google calendar with provider for google still does).

I tried re-installing the add-ons, re-booting etc. but to no avail. Any solution to that?

In this context, we are using shared exchange calendars, and in the past it was possible to sync these too using the Thunderbird EWS add-on. It would be good if such a possibility would be available in the future, too... unfortunately these features exert quite some pressure to use the clumsy Outlook and nasty Windows... :(

Many thanks in advance if a solution can be found!

by trial and error, i have discovered that ctl-click will allow me to select multiple events in the calendar. (is there a better way to do this?)

after selecting multiple events, i want to move all of them en masse to another day. i assumed that i could simply click and drag any of the selected events and they would all move but this does not happen - only the single event that i click moves even while multiple events remain selected (indicated by their change in color).

is there a way for me to move multiple currently selected events to another day?

thanx for your help!

Right now when i accept a meeting invite it defaults to adding the meeting to my 'home' calendar. I've installed the google calendar add-on so that I can synch my calendar with my iphone. (it works well) By invites defaulting to my 'home' calendar (and I can't go in an change the calendar the event is attached to) it means I can't see the meeting in my google calendar (and thus my iphone). It is weird because my brother has check boxes beside the calendars (where listed on the far left of the screen below a small monthly calendar - with no events) but I don't. we are using the same version of thunderbird.

thanks for the help, Lisa

I have been attempting to integrate my Outlook accounts into Thunderbird. The mail components are fine, the calendar is not. Unfortunately as Microsoft has further moved it Outlook functions online, it has not made support for Calendar sync with clients such as Lightning in Thunderbird easy. CalDav functions are difficult if not impossible to find. I found one solution that I thought might help, DAVMail. It works perfectly for my two corporate outlook accounts. However it does not seem to work at all for my personal account. Not sure why. I have done some troubleshooting by at this point I am a bit stumped.

Does anyone have any kind of insights on how to resolve the Outlook Calendar sync problem??

Hi, I am using Thunderbird on Windows (version 78.5.1) and when I get an invitation to an event, there is no control panel visible, where I can accept, decline ... the event so that it is imported in my calendar (see screenshot).

On my Ubuntu OS where I have Thunderbird and lightning this works perfectly well. However on Windows I have Thunderbird Version 78.5.1, where lightning is no longer supported, since the calendar function is supported from default and there I can not find a way of getting the option to accept or decline an invitation.

I have a caldav calendar and a local one.

I could not find any information to this in the support forum or in the internet.

Thanks for any help, Freddy

Hi there, Thunderbird 78.5.0 on Win 10 Pro. In the past I used to drag and drop downloaded .ics files to Events and Tasks sidebar in order to load events onto Thunderbird. After update this won't work anymore as the file is seen as an event attachment (somehow "nested" into the event itself, see attached image). When I try to open the ICS file instead, the Import Event button produces no effect (no event loaed in the calendar view) while the Import All shows a generic import failed error (2nd attachment). Any idea on what's happening? Many thanks!

This morning I open my laptop and there's no Thunderbird. Icon is missing and a search of the hard drive comes up empty. A truly WTF moment. I Googled this phenomenon and ended up downloading and reinstalling Thunderbird. All email folders and email returned (thank god).

The lighting Calendar now only shows events from one of five I had enabled with the others all saying "The provider for this calendar could not be found. This often happens if you have disabled or uninstalled certain addons.

The location shows the URL (e.g., googleapi://...) and an email address, but the Enable This Calendar check box is greyed out.

All I did was the forced-to-update reinstall of Thunderbird.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

To test, I've installed 78 and set up a profile with my accounts, all working well.

My only confusion- since Lightning calendar support is now built-in- is how to actually ad my Google calendar like I used to with Lightning.

With the addon lightning, I could sign into my Google account and give permissions. That doesn't appear to be an option in 78.
