try gContactSync instead Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It was good while it lasted.

There is another addon that looks even better: gContactSync. It seem to synchronize the full contact, including photos. I just started using it and it looks pretty good.

Coders are humans so will we need to fork / recode the extension? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Dear Ace Frahm, coders are human but this is an abondoned project. I tried to contact the author and he didn't reply me. HUNDREDS persons opened and updated tickets about the authentication, from months, without an answer.
Is this awful? Or is awful to leave persons with an extension used on daily basis not working from months?
And by the by, because I'm an awful person, I'm inclined to unpack the extension and fork it on github. At least the COMMUNITY could fix and carry on the project, seeing the lack of interest of the original author.

Coders Are Human, Humans Need Time To Code Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Give him some time to fix the recurring password dialog problem, it only just started happening, be patiient. Real human coders might take a few days to realize there's a problem, and a few more to fix it. Plus, he gets to have a summer vacation sometime too, and that might be now. So knock it off with your 1 or 2 star ratings, that's awful behavior.

Useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work anymore and is useless until it gets fixed.
It may be Google's fault, but that's not relevant as long as it doesn't work.

Working again Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't know what is happened, but now 11.06.2015 this add-on is working again. Problems with authentication are gone. The add-on version is the same, maybe Google has changed something once again :)

Problème avec Google Contacts 0.7.12 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

J'ai le même souci depuis une dizaine de jours: plus de synchronisation avec Google Contacts. Il demande toujours le mot de passe et même en le renseignant, la demande réapparaît sans être prise en compte...
Une mise à jour est-elle prévue?
Ce module est super sinon!!

OwnCloud Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Google changed API again... annoying. Possible fix: no longer use google contacts, use owncloud instead and regain control over your data....

problème authentification google contatcs Rated 2 out of 5 stars

J'ai un soucis avec la dernière version de Thunderbird. j'utilise le module complémentaire Google Contacts 0.7.12 pour synchroniser mon carnet d'adresse
avec Thunderbird et depuis 15 jours maintenant il refuse de prendre mon mot de passe en compte. j'ai supprimé le module et réinstallé, rien à faire.

A chaque fois que je redémarre TB il me redemande le mot de passe de google contact , je le met et il me le redemande sans cesse je dois faire annuler pour continuer

Used it for a long time, but since May 2015, it hasn't work, with an endless loop of windows requesting log on to Google Contacts despite using the correct account password and even the one time passwords in Google for accounts with 2-Step verification turned on.

Google Contacts does not work anymore Rated 1 out of 5 stars

For a week, the password is asked without stopping and without end.
No new developer!
I ended up leaving the "Add-on" and for those interested, replacing I took "gContactSync"

no longer working, unmaintained, no trust in developer Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Some time ago this was a pretty useful add-on, but for a while it does no longer work at all, as the user is asked for the Google contacts password in an endless loop.

No visible reaction from the developer despite numerous disastrous reports, so it seems that the application is no longer maintained. It was reported that the Google API that the add-on used (and which seemingly was now switched off) was marked as deprecated for years!

Besides the current severe problem this does not inspire trust that "simple" security problems would be handled appropriately, so even in case the app would be updated to work again I will longer trust my personal address book to this add-on, sorry.
