I also went back to the Provider for Google Calendar plugin. I guess as long as that keeps working I'll just stick with it. Has anyone filed a bug report for this CalDAV issue yet?

Updated to TB 24 and Lightning 2.6. Followed the instructions on this page:
https://blog.mozilla.org/calendar/2013/ ... calendars/

On completion of the above steps, Google prompted in a window to authorize the Lightning app. I did.
But i can't see my agenda anymore, i keep getting the yellow triangle. Offline toggle doesn't help.

Provider is also updated, if that needs to run even. I don't know. Turning it on/off doesn't change the connection problem.

What can i do now? Is this the official Lightning dev forum?

Exactly the same issue as zeepster. Tried via CalDAV and Calendar Provider. Even without firewall.
Strangely it still works with the old adresses on my Mac with Sunbird 1.0b1 installed.

Btw I switched to Google Calendar Tab 3.9, hopefully just temporarily.
Since it still works with the old urls on my Mac (Win7 64bit here) and on my phone aswell, would anybody suggest a complete reinstall to get rid of the profiles?

I found at least a temporary partial fix that works for me. If you add another calender using the iCal URL from google, you get read-only access to your calendar, as was mentioned previously. The "fix" is that the original calendar with the "not available" warning appears to still work, but only write-only. So, I can create new events in the "old" calendar and on resync they will appear in the "new" one. It's only a partial fix, though, because these events cannot be edited or deleted through Lighting since they are events in the new read-only calendar.

Same problem here with the trunk/nightly/daily builds of Thunderbird and Lightning. Yellow triangles on all 14 of my Google CalDAV calendars.

New URL used: https://apidata.googleusercontent.com/c ... com/events

I had the "yellow triangle" issue suddenly appear today on a Google calendar in Lightning that using has been using CalDEV for quite some time. I ended up getting things working again by installing the latest version of the GData Provider and selecting "Google Calendar" as the calendar format. Go figure.

The problem with GData Provider is that it doesn't allow you accept calender invites - am I right?

A new problem with Google CalDAV has been reported in Bug 920755. According to the comments Google switched on a new CalDAV feature and now Lightning 2.6 doesn't work anymore. The specific problem can be noticed by the following message in Thunderbird Error Console: "Warning: CalDAV: Error doing webdav sync: 400".

Thanks for the heads up.
I see that the dev is working on 2.6.1. Hopefully the password lock and calendar sync problem will be fixed then.
