Thunderbird 17 – Lighting/Provider for Google Calendar

Lightning will auto-update to version 1.9 when Thunderbird checks add-on compatibility during the update. However, Goggle Calendar users will need to manually update to Provider for Google Calendar add-on to version 0.18 in order to get their Google Calendar(s) to work again in Thunderbird 17. To update go to Tools > Add-ons > Extensions > select Lighting and right-click and select Find Updates. After restart your Google Calendar(s) will show up in Thunderbird again.

    That worked. Now I have the 1-minute freeze back when Thunderbird starts but I’d much rather have that than no calendar.

  4. grand! thanks, that was what i was looking for!

  5. since I have installed the thunderbird 17.0 and updated the lightning, i have problems. the thunderbird opens automatically approy 10 times (number is increasing each timeI use it), but I can not close the different windows. If I shut one, all are gone.
    Does anybody have an idea, what I can do?

    Thank you
