Fix for Thunderbird 45.7.1 ? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi,
Using "Provider for Google Calendar" for many months, I find it very useful !!
But since an update of Thunderbird (45.7.1) this morning, Thunderbird can't be launched. I have to desactivate "Provider for Google Calendar" to allow the launching.
Do you intend to provide a fix for this ?

Many thanks for your answer !
Jerome

Identical Installations with different behavior: Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hello,
I like the add-on, installation is straight forward, but I end up with two different behaviours. On one system everything works fine, starting THunderbird and everything is available (2 mail accounts including gmail, Google Calendar in Lightning.
on another system I have to go throught the gmail Authentification for the Calendar everytime I am loading Thunderbird. Both Installations were done on the same day. I did not find any difference in the configurations. Both systems are running:
Ubuntu 16.04 64bit
Thunderbird 45.5.1
Lightning 4.7.4
Provider for Google Calendar 3.1 (aktualisiert/installiert 18.01.17)
Authentification with every login is ok, but does not make a lot of sense if access to Gmail is provided whenever Thunderbird starts.
It would be great to get some advice to fix this.
Thanks!

Very useful app with one problem (for me at least) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful app.

One nuisance for me is that the when copying from one calendar to a google calendar it automatically sends out an email to all the guest list. eg. If I am invited to event A. And I copy Event A to Google Calendar. I send out invites to everyone on the guest list.

Very nice Add-On Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add on is the best way to sync between Lightning/IceOwl and Google Calendar. Since it also sync with Google Tasks, it is really great.

Wish: Display different Task-Lists separated to have better focus on a List.

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works very well... Thanks

Custom reminder bug Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hello, thanks for your reply. You mean contact Google support, right?
The reminder can be one or more days before, it doesn't matter. Even minutes or hours, or multiple reminders.
If I use CalDAV everything works fine (minus the email notifications, of course.

Reminders Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It's an indispensable extension if you use Google Calendar, but unfortunately it comes with a major annoyance: the same reminder keeps popping up again and again no matter how many times I dismiss it.

About authentication woes ;) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I had the same problem. It would ask me to authenticate everytime I would open thunderbird.
The solution: When creating a new google calendar don't forget to create a new session. After you select new calendar > on the network > google calendar it is requesting to select a session or create a new one. Just input your google e-mail. Solved ;)

klein aber gut Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Manche ADDons lohnen sich auch ohne grosses tamtam.
Dieses hier erleichtert die Kalenderbearbeitung für Google am PC für Thunderbird auf alle Fälle.
Deswegen bin ich auch gerne bereit diese Arbeit zu unterstützen.

danke für dieses Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

PS: man muss EWS Exchange deaktivieren bevor man google calender benutzen kann. nach der einrichtung kann man wieder EWS aktivieren. (one has to turn off the EWS Provider then configure google calendar and turn it on again)

New To Provider Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not having had much experience linking Thunderbird + Lightning + Google Calendar I have to say that the Provider process streamlines the setup making it much simpler and more intuitive. I am happy to report that in the 30 minutes since I began using Provider I have not encountered any problems that could not be solved by RTFM!

Working or not?! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have two machines running TB 45.2.0 but the add-on only works on one of them. It works on Ubuntu 12.04 while it does not work on 16.04. I have cookies enabled ("always") and Javascript is enabled by default on both. So from that point of view they are configured identically but still they do behave differently, namely one can access Google calendars while the other one cannot.

If there is a way I can help at shooting the trouble with this test set-up, let me know here. Myself, I have not been able to find a clue about what is going wrong but maybe there is a way to find out?

PS: I have put down five stars because the add-on does provide highly important functionality when it is working (as it has up to about one or two months ago). So let's make it work again!

Please contact email support for more information and thank you for leaving a five star review!

Google authentication fails, requires Javascript enabled Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The behaviour I see is quite different, the plug-in does not work but the message I get tells me I have Javascript disabled.
I have already enabled cookies from anyone, it was no good

Update: setting javascript.enabled to true - as suggested by Philipp - did work. Thank you. Could be that the last TB update reverted the boolean ? (BTW javascript.enabled is safe, it does not enable javascript in email)

Please go to the advanced config editor and check if javascript.enabled is set to true. You can find it in the Options > Advanced > General > Config Editor.

Stop Working a week ago Rated 4 out of 5 stars

As Responded by jonmyers, Enable cookies in Thunderbird and not the browser. Works just fine now. If Philipp the Developer added this note in the Add-ons description a lot of complaints would not be written.

I'd much rather fix the cookie bug by properly making an exception or enabling cookies only for the login dialog. I'll see if I can get to this soon though. Thanks for the feedback!

Prev review vanished - Got it working Rated 4 out of 5 stars

My previous review (which seems to have vanished) indicated that Provider for Google Calendar was not working. I played around a but and found (I think) that reinstalling Exchange EWS Provider fixed it

Sorry the previous review vanished. If it contained URLs it is auto-flagged for review by the addons.mozilla.org reviewers and there are some other cases.

This one seemed to stick though. Thanks for the note on the EWS provider. There is a bug in some versions of it that would cause the new calendar dialog to not work, all you need to do here is disable the EWS provider while adding new calendars.

I'm glad things are working now!

es läuft wieder! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hallo,

dank an jonmyers für den Hinweis. Jetzt läuft wieder alles wie gewohnt.
Für die Menschen, die des englischen nicht so mächtig sind:
In Thunderbird! unter Einstellungen > Datenschutz > Cookies von Webseiten aktzeptieren den Haken rein machen und es klappt wieder.
Gruß,
Chris

Enable Cookies in THUNDERBIRD (not your Browser) and it works Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works again, but you must enable cookies in Thunderbird, not your browser, as the stupid popup window tells you. Tools>Options>Privacy>Accept Cookies......

Unable to Authenticate Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Something happened overnight. I cannot get Thunderbird to authenticate access to my Calendar accounts.

Instead, I get routed to a Google help page about enabling cookies.

There's no indication of what to do.

Coming here has helped - but this isn't apparent - would be very useful to have an alert from either T-bird or Provider
