Thunderbird 15, Lightning and Provider for Google Calendar

Thunderbird 15 has been released and with that is an update to Lightning to the new 1.7 version which was released a couple days ago. I restarted Thunderbird after the updates and while I had my tasks, I had no calendars. I looked at the add-ons manager and saw I was running Provider for Google Calendar version 0.13 which is the most current release version. I checked under developmental versions and found a link to download the 0.16pre version. Installed this version, restarted and I had my Google Calendars back in Thunderbird. I am not sure if it is the new Firefox 15, but for some reason clicking on the Download for Windows links over on AMO tries to install the add-on into Firefox instead of downloading. Right-clicking and selecting Save Link As… will get you around this little annoyance.

  1. I had the same problem with google calendar et TB 15. Thanks a lot for the solution 🙂

    • I checked on my main machine which is running Beta 15 and I am running the newer version of Calendar Provider. However, I am also running the developmental EarlyLight add-on which as I recall was the reason I had to go version 0.16 of Calendar Provider.

  2. I had the same issue — after upgrading to TB 15 today (8/28/2012), my Google Calendars stopped showing up. Tried removing and re-adding the provider add-on to no avail. After installing 0.16pre, they were back.

  3. Thanks for the solution. Works great 😉
