Instructions on the wiki state to access "settings" via the right side of Google Calendar, but of course Google's gone and changed things around again, so I couldn't find the XML button in the main calendar settings page.
I found the XML button by clicking on the DOWN button - next to my calendar's name (in the left portion of Google calendar), then clicking on Calendar Settings. I chose the 2nd XML button, since my calendar is not public.
After re-adding a new Google calendar to TB, using the new 4th radio button, then entering my Google PW, I tested by adding an event to my Google calender *on* TB, reloaded remote calenders from TB, then reloaded my Google calendar in the browser, and my test event was there in the browser too, YAY!

With all of the disinformation flying about these comments, it must be hard for the uninitiated to make a rational determination as to the value of this add-on.
There are four independent yet interdependent components to consider when installing, using, and upgrading this add-on:
1. Thunderbird or SeaMonkey (the base component)
2. Lightning (the calendar component)
3. Provider for Google Calendar (this add-on)
4. Google Calendar (the data component)
When upgrading, it is extremely important to remember that changes to Lightning and/or Thunderbird (or SeaMonkey) will very likely have some impact on the behavior of Provider for Google Calendar. If available, you should upgrade your build of the Provider at the same time as you upgrade Lightning.
A good rule of thumb when upgrading any of these components is to disable *all* remote calendars before the upgrade, then upgrade Thunderbird (or SeaMonkey), followed by Lightning, and finally Provider for Google Calendar. Once all that's done, review the properties of your remote calendar(s) to be sure that nothing broke in your profile, and only then, re-enable your remote calendars.
CalDAV support for Google calendars is great but lacks some functionality (notifications via SMS, for example - at least, this has been the case; it is likely to change in the future, but that is entirely up to Google). Whatever changes Google may make to various external calendar interfaces are beyond the control of this add-on's developer and anyone else outside of Google, so please don't blame this add-on (or it's developer) for such happenings.
It works for the vast majority of us using it, and the author is active in development, responsive to bug reports, and approachable. Beyond that, the price is truly an exceptional value (FREE), which is something often overlooked in the open source community.
As with all things in life, your personal experience may vary, and no two people share the same data conditions at the same time. This add-on works very, very well for me, and I highly recommend it.
Google Calendar (bidirectional) CalDAV Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček
Google Calendar (bidirectional) working really well with CalDAV
If you are still using Google Provider 0.9 to access your Google Calendar you should be having A LOT of problems right now.
I would recommend to switch to CalDAV following this google instructions
Thunderbird -> File -> New -> Calendar -> On the Network -> CalDAV (Paste link here)
Your CalDAV link for a particular calendar should be something like this:
https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/ (HERE PASTE YOUR GOOGLE CALENDAR ID) /events
Google Calendar ID could be found below on any individual Calendar Settings options.
Remember to replace the "@" for a "%40" without quotes when you paste the ID.
Eg. it would look like this
Thunderbird will request
username: Google calendar email
password: Password of this email
CalDAV also syncs my colored categories :)

Hope this could help someone :)

Last Thunderbird update FAILED greatly. Ohodnoceno 3 z 5 hvězdiček
Provider has been working flawlessly for me over the last year. Besides the obvious lack of development happening...it wasn't buggy. After I updated Thunderbird, and also Lightning yesterday, I started getting a few glitches. I have about 15 different calendars linked into Thunderbird...and I noticed a few events had switched calendars and added random alarms. No big deal...switched them back. Then it happened more, and more, and more. It got to the point where I have now lost 1,000's of important business events which just vanished. It took extremely private events, and moved them into public calendars with which I share access with 100's of people, and added alarms to them. I started getting phone calls from people saying my private doctor's appointments just made a notification on their phone with all my info.
I finally had to remove Provider, as it was still happening every time I opened Thunderbird to get to my email...and didn't even open Lightning.
I'm now looking at years worth of meticulously organized events either missing or with lost data, and in public forums.
So just be VERY CAREFUL with this program. If it ever goes wrong for you too...you will have all your private stuff sent out to EVERYONE!
Waiting for gtask sync... Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček
This is a great add-on but without the gtask sync it is crippled. I have been following this add-on for about a year and there is no progress. I would appreciate if Philipp can give us a date. Gtask sync is somewhat curial for me to keep using thunderbird in the near future. I do not think I am alone in this expectation. I wish google chrome had an integrated email/calendar/task suit....Tato recenze je pro předchozí verzi doplňku (0.9).

Syncing with Android Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček
Re Suggestion by Carlos below.
dl Business Calendar Free from the Android Market. This will enable you to sync your Google calendars to your smart phone. Then with 'Provider for GC' you can add appointments and reminders on your phone which will appear on your Lightning calendar and visa versa. With this android app I can also push a calendar to my wife's phone (from Google) so she can see what my work schedule is doing.
Provider for Google Cal is a fantastic add-on. I'm just a little peeved its not available for TB 5.0 +
Wonderful! Avoids horrors of CALDAV - any chance of SeaMonkey version? 2.4.1 at the moment Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

SUGGESTIONS Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček
I am using this only for a few days, but I think that is very useful.
I have 2 sugestions :
1 - Is possible to have a syncr with a Smartphone or blackberry , with Gmail ???
2 - Is possible to have an option to send a mail O sms with the alarm of the event ? (like Calendar in Google accounts)
Almost perfect - missing only tasks Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

Problem Synchronize Events with repetition then agenda becomes READ_ONLY Ohodnoceno 2 z 5 hvězdiček
When i try to delete an occurence on events which repeat weekly then the agenda becomes READ_ONLY and I cannot synchronize the google agenda.
I delete the specific occurence via the webbrowser in the google calendar. Then i try to synchronize the agenda in thunderbird but it does not work. The occurence still remain in lightning.
I seems that lightning does not actualize its cache ???
