60.3.0
Just reinstalled in new PC but cannot find how to make Google Calendar work in it.

In previous version, just downloaded AddOn and it appeared, nice and simple.

Now there is no AddOn that allows me to access Google Calander.

Any way to get this great feature back?



Thanks



PS
I have a 64bGb, Thunderbird says its 32Gb, is this OK?

Have you tried this extension == https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/th ... src=search

I think you might mean you have 64bit operating system (not 64Gb) and, if that is true, running Thunderbird 32bit in that environment is absolutely fine. There is no official 64bit version of Thunderbird for the Windows operating system at this time.

Typically you either use CalDAV or the provider for google calendar add-on with Lightning if you want to use google calendar. Is Lightning installed? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/ca ... hunderbird describes what to do if Lightning disappears after a update etc.

The Google Calendar Tab add-on doesn't use the Lightning add-on bundled with Thunderbird, its equivalent to using a browser with google calendar, except its all done from within a tab in Thunderbird.

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Calendars_-_Thunderbird mentions several other alternatives.

Thanks for the information.

The add on worked great on my last PC, Win10 using Thunderbird, but on my new PC it does not
Here is the link https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-GB/th ... #id=879821

I would really like to get the google calendar tab back in Thunderbird, it was so convenient. I can't contact the programmer from this link.
It put a Google Calendar icon at the top of the page, which worked perfectly.

Anyone know how I can get this back?


Thanks

Nope.

However you can customize the toolbar to add the blue 31 calendar icon to the toolbar if you install the add-on at https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-us/th ... ogle-tabs/ . Clicking on it brings up google calendar in a tab. The add-on supports Thunderbird 57.0 - 63.0.
