Ever since the November update my events are not showing when launching Thunderbird.    I have to go and open the calendar tab and then uncheck the eye and recheck the eye for each and every calendar to get them to show up again.

Is this a Thunderbird issue or a plug-in issue?

I've been having this trouble as well, but haven't looked into further
just yet.

I am also having this issue.  Running Windows 10 and fully up-to-date on Thunderbird and Lightning

I'm having the same issue on Mac OS with Thunderbird 78.6.1 (64-bit)...

My solution has been to either do the trick the original author suggested. Another trick  that works is to uninstall and then reinstall the plug-in. However, this only seems to last for a while. The disappearing issue returns.

At the risk of repeating myself, I've found the TBsync add-in very good for multiple calendars.

Has anyone else noticed that the "server push" of new emails seems to be rather  sluggish?

78.6.1 (32 bit)  - maybe I should be thinking about 64-bit....

Chris, you wrote "At the risk of repeating myself, I've found the TBsync add-in very good for multiple calendars.".

TBsync does NOT support Google Calendars,  so its not viable as a alternative.

Seems to work for me!  It auto-discovers the CALDAV addresses from my gmail address

Elleby, you need to change the setting extensions.dav4tbsync.googlesupport to true in order to make TbSync work with Google. More details here: https://github.com/jobisoft/DAV-4-TbSync/issues/240

I saw that,  but that option does not appear in Thunderbird for me (yes, I have the extension installed and even tried exiting and reentering the app).   I see other extension settings like extensions.dss.switchPending and extensions.pendingOperations;  but there are none that are extensions.dav4tbsync.googlesupport (I don't even see anything that starts with extensions.dav4tbsync).

I just assumed that this ability was removed at some point.

Just to clarify - you have installed both TbSync and Provider for CalDAV & CardDAV extensions?

Yes I have both.  I have 6 or 7 different accounts Google, Office 365, Virgin and my UK business ISP.  I use Provider for some, and TBsync for others...
