Oops. My error. I was thinking of email, not contacts. For gmail contacts, you need to go to addressbooks and create a new CARDAV addressbook, logging into you 4rgmail account. My inference is your phone is using the gmail contact list.

I don't understand. I'm referring to the gmail addressbook that I infer you have set up. Please update me and we can go from there.

You need to be in Thunderbird. Addressbooks. Click 'new addressbook' and select 'add cardav addressbook' and then enter gmail email id and gmail dot com for address. You should then be prompted by gmail for signin to authorize the use. once done, the addressbook should be created. and from there, you can click the synchronize option.
