Changing default for accepted calendar invitations v78.5.1
Since v78, I haven't been able to select the calendar that accepted invites get put on. They inevitably go to the "Home" calendar/local storage. I need them to go onto a calendar that syncs with Google calendar. Previously, I used this fix: https://julien.coubronne.net/en/2017/02/03/change-the-default-thunderbird-calendar-when-creating-a-new-event-in-lighting/ but it doesn't work with/doesn't apply to the current version.
I have also tried syncing the desired target calendar with both Google provider add-on and using the generic ical option when I set the calendar up. No luck for either.
Any suggestions much appreciated.

ical is inevitable read only or has other issues. Like a word document, it is not really meant to the shared around for synchronization.
Try using caldav. Then calendars are associated with email addresses, one of calendar to one email address, so you need to pick which email goes with your calendar. Clearly you have chosen the "home" calenadar at this point.
Hi Matt, Thanks for your response. I am still not having success. Added CalDAV. Now, when I create a calendar, I have the option to choose CalDAV. So: Create new calendar→Select "On the network"→Select "CalDAV"/Username [name of the user for the Google calendar I want to sync with the Thunderbird calendar]/location [Google secret address in ical format]→...select email address [email address fetched with Thunderbird that I want associated with the calendar, not a Gmail address, btw]→complete. BUT, it won't allow me to "enable" the calendar. (Why?) I have also tried setting up by selecting Google calendar rather than CalDAV, but then I can't associate the calendar created with the correct email address. Always associates with the "home" calendar, stored locally, and, btw, associated/assigned to a different email address. Therefore, accepted invitations are not synced to the server.
In the not too olden days, and without CalDAV, (I think I used Provider for Google Calendar, which doesn't work anymore), each time I accepted an invite, I could choose which Lightening calendar it would be added to. No such option exists now. Nor does it seem possible to edit the event and change the calendar it's on after the invite is accepted.
Any further ideas?
location [Google secret address in ical format]
You'll need to provide the correct URL including your email address: https://apidata.googleusercontent.com/caldav/v2/your-email-address/events
Hello, Thanks for the suggestion, but this didn't work. I copied and pasted the above using my email address when setting up a new calendar. The calendar set up ok, but Thunderbird would not let me enable it.
Any further suggestions for how to tie together event invitations from a specific email address to a specific calendar that is synced with Google calendar?
Go to your calendar on google Next to the calendar names under the heading my Calendars select the three dots. Select settings and sharing Scroll down to Integrate calendar and copy the calendar Id, this is usually your email address (for the first calendar you create), but it sounds like it is not in this case put insert that into the URL Christ1 gave you.
You might also want to confirm that you have cookies enabled in Thunderbird. It is the default but anything is possible. The calendar authentication method is oAth and it requires cookies
