TB 52.0.1 (32-bit) Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This one during the time when Google left things alone was great. I have installed the latest version into the Thunderbird Portable. Now it just hangs and causes the TB to pop up a unresponsive script error many times. I still have it installed, just not enabled until I can come across a fix for this. I am using only 4 calendars, all Gmail.
Great add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great extension. I use it to synchronize 8 calendars on two different Google accounts. However I have experienced one issue recently. On one Google account, I have added a read-only calendar and used a Google function which is to add a default alarm to all these events. With that, all events on this read-only calendar have a 3-hour alarm.
Both on Google Calendar itself and on my phone (using Business Agenda on Android), I can dismiss those alarms without problems. However, on Thunderbird, I can't. Is there a solution?
Right now, I made a work-around: I imported twice the same calendar in Google and have set alarms on only one of these. I use the one with alarms on my phone and the one without on Thunderbird. Not the most elegant solution.
BTW, I have Thunderbird 53B1 with integrated Lightning on Windows and Provider... v. 3.3.
This is a limitation in Lightning, but there are bugs filed to fix it. I hope to get to it soon!
Upgrading to TB52 broke it Rated 4 out of 5 stars
After an upgrade to TB52, the extension will pop up a login to google windows, with the email address as username. The "NEXT" button, however, is ignored, so I cannot enter the password.
I suppose it might be a bug with the popup itself: switching my gmail account to Oauth2 in the accounts management for the main program shows the same popup with the same problem. But ther is no way tell the Provider to use the stored password instead.
Thanks for the feedback. For the record, this is happening on a Linux FC25 box.
A version to fix this is in the queue, Google made some changes to the login dialog that I needed to react to.
Stopped working after Thunderbird 52 Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This worked great until TB 52. Then it started getting in a loop where you can neither dismiss or make any changes/updates to google calendar events. It makes the whole TB useless and had to be disabled.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1).
Problem with 2 google accounts Rated 3 out of 5 stars
When I try to add a calendar from the second account, they will always be shown only the calendars of the first account.
The problem occurs after upgrading to tb 52.
Please fix it ;)
Can't add a google calendar Rated 3 out of 5 stars
In the process of adding a google calendar, after selecting “Google Calendar”, the continue button is not active, so I cannot. Any idea how to solve it?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1).
Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars
does not sync either way to google. Shouldn't there be a google log-in somewhere so T-Bird/Lightning can talk to google? I'm on 45.8 and lightning 4.7.4. Been using these forever. Have spent an hour on this and worn out.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1).
Editing fails for Google calendar from within Thunderbird Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It normally does, please ping support :)
Provider 3.1 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I use Thunderbird v52.0a1 (2016-10-27) with Lightning v5.4a1 and Provider 3.1 and I am pleased with the connectivity. However, I am not able to upgrade to later versions of Thunderbird and keep Provider working. I would appreciate an upgrade to Provider.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1).

Fix for Thunderbird 45.7.1 ? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
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 !
Identical Installations with different behavior: Rated 4 out of 5 stars
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
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.
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... ThanksThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1).
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.
Can you please fix the damn cookie bug Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1).
About authentication woes ;) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Ref: Flawed but necessary Rated 2 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 ;)
