After updating to TB 78, all calendars are not working. I see a "Provider for this calendar could not be found" messages in my calendar details. I did not change any settings when updating, and the calendars were working before updating.

Any help is appreciated!

Google Calendar constantly disappears

OS: Mac / 2020 Macbook Pro Thunderbird version 78.7.1 (64-bit) (most current) Provider for Google Calendar Add-on version 78.0.1 (most current)

Been having this issue for a while now - Calendar entries suddenly don't show up in the calendar tab and in the today pane.

I go into the calendar pane and click the eye shaped icon next to the google calendar I want to see, it all becomes visible again in both the calendar and today pane.

The next day it's usually gone again and I have to go in and make it visible. I don't shut down my computer or thunderbird. Calendar settings are set to "Show all calendars"

It's not a huge deal, but tedious to do every day and the whole point of having the today pane is that I'm not thinking about those things, I see them, I remember to do them. I don't always remember to refresh it and it's caused me to miss some things.

I have tried removing thunderbird and re-installing, that doesn't affect it. I have tried disconnecting/reconnecting the Google calendar, that doesn't affect it either.

Please help! Thanks

Let's start all over. Thunderbird automatically updated and I have lost all entries in my calendar. I have had help with solving my problem which have not worked. How do I launch the Thunderbird about.config? I have been told to go to TOOLS and select OPTIONS. There is no OPTIONS to select under the under the TOOLS menu. I have 3 calendars and all are shown as ENABLED. What did the update change and how do I get my entries back?

Calendar Broken in Thunderbird 91 on Win10

I was on vers 78.12.0 and Thunderbird told me a new version was available. Since download and install from Thunderbird has never worked for me, I went to the Mozilla website, and did a download and install. The version that was available is 91.0.1. But now, Calendar which was working in 78 is no longer working. There are new Enable buttons on the left for the various potential sources of events for the calendar, but clicking on any of them has no effect in what is displayed in the calendar grid. If I close Thunderbird then reopen, what I previously selected to be Enabled is now disabled, and still no calendar grid.

Since it looks like upgrading to 91 was a mistake, I tried to reinstall vers 78, but I get an error message that the existing profile has been updated for the newer version, and that If I want to use the old version, I need to create a new profile and reload all my accounts, add-ins, etc. Wait, what? Why was the old profile not preserved and a new one created for the new version to allow for reverting back from a bad update?

BTW, I previously paid to support Thunderbird.

And a solution found that worked. Now Mozilla in their ludicrous wisdom have somehow screwed this up again. Anyone have a solution that works? I and lots of other people like the whole event title bar being a single colour. These 'dots' at the end are useless to see. Thanks PS Stop screwing with the settings. What to add something new, then create an add-on.

[Nov 17 I deleted "TB78" from the subject line when I realised the problem goes back earlier.] ICS makes message text invisible!

I have an online booking system and I can send and receive email messages to and from my clients via this. These emails contain both a text message, plus an ICS of the appointment the message relates to. All was well until I updated to TB78. Previous TB would show me both the information in the ICS file in an unboxed freeform format, plus the vital text message from my client at the top of the screen.

Now that is broken. First - this bit is not broken, this is just different - the ICS appears in a blue box in a structured layout. And - BIG problem - the text message appears nowhere in the email, neither before, in or after the blue ICS box. Ie the point of the email, the actual message, is not shown!

The problem is with TB78. If I go back to emails from before TB78 in which I could previously read the message, the message has no longer displayed. And if I access any of these emails in webmail, they all have to the old freeform unboxed format and the message perfectly visible.

This looks very like a bug in TB78 and I hope can be fixed or a setting that changes it.

Many thanks

Since the latest upgrade to version 91 the Calendar has become unusable. To start with, after the update my main Calendar has completely disappeared taking with it very important upcoming appointments. In addition to that if I create an event all the data entered does not appear in the relevant day in the calendar and it will also not allow me to import any future events from other calendars.

To put bluntly, as a calendar it is totally useless. Any suggestions please?

Looks like Thunderbird 91.x Calendar (OSX) has a totally new Print dialogue but useful functionality has disappeared.

Print Preview - no longer can preview or print Selected events/tasks.

Previously, you could tick the box for a choice of What to Print:

  • Current view
  • Selected events/tasks
  • Custom date range

The second option was really, really useful and I used it all the time to only print out selected Events from different dates. It is missing from the new Print dialogue and you can no longer copy text from the print preview (which was very useful as well).

Can anyone suggest anything?

I have been using Thunderbird and the Thunderbird Calendar for years without any problems. I am using Windows 10 and Thunderbird 91.0.3 (64-bit). About 2 weeks ago all the entries on my calendar disappeared many of them birthdays which had been there for years. I have re-entered and saved some new events but when I come back to the laptop after an hour or so without closing and reopening Thunderbird, they have disappeared. Replies to other questions suggest importing but as I have never exported it and have no other calendars there is nowhere to import it from.

I have my Google calendar synced with Thunderbird and it is working fine. However, I have created a 2nd calendar for work in Thunderbird and cannot get it to sync with Google. Plenty of advice for doing it one way round but not the other. Is this possible or do I need to create a 2nd google calendar and sync it that way round? Thanks

I have two calendars - one local, one network. I want the network calendar to be the default for entry of new events. I keep selecting the network calendar in the calendar list pane, but the selection keeps reverting to the local calendar. How can I set the network calendar as the default, and have it remain the default thereafter, so that I don't have to constantly re-select the network calendar?

google calendar provider does not work anymore with TB 78.7.1 - more than 250.000 users depend on it. not a single word or a warning before an auto update - that sucks. is there any solution or are all these users now swimming in nowhere. if using TB professional way there has got to be a way and or a solution provided by Mozilla for not letting their user being stranded again and again because this is a crucially function for almost every android user and this is not the first time happening. i cant even find a download possibility to an older version to get my stuff working again. that really really sucks - who needs newest stuff if functionality and usability is not given anymore?

Now, if I want to have same information on both units, I have to use the .ics files and I find it laborious. And what about providing a cloud solution for this same purpose ?

I have been using Lightening with TB for some time (with the Provider for Google Calendar add-on) but following the update of TB to 78 all the Google Calendar entries disappear from TB calendar. The Google calendar appears as still connected but the entries are not visible. The only way I can get them to show is to remove my Google calendar and then reconnect the calendar, but the entries disappear again when I restart TB. How do I correct this?

I am using TB 78.5.0 and Provider 78.0.1. I have only one other extension installed, FileLink Provider for Box v4, but that was installed after the problem started.

Thanks in advance.

I'm on Thunderbird 78.4.1 release. I can add an event in Thunderbird calendar, but it does not get added to Google calendar. I can add an event in Google calendar and it does get added to Thunderbird calendar. I can delete an event in Thunderbird calendar, that is also in Google calendar, and it does get deleted in Google calendar. I have 3 extensions: Provider for CalDav & CardDav, Provider for Google Calendar, & TbSync. I've tried enabling & disabling all combinations, but still cannot get Thunderbird calendar event to get added to Google calendar. Is there a post specifically for my release of Thunderbird that explains how to properly sync these calendars?
