Provider for Google Calendar is not working for me in Thunderbird 78.7.0. Meetings appear on the wrong dates. If I unsubscribe and resubscribe, the meetings appear on the correct dates, but eventually they jump back to the wrong dates. (They jump back to the wrong dates immediately if I click "Synchronize Calendars".)

I see that Provider for Google Calendar is specified only for versions of Thunderbird through 78.2.0. I am willing to revert to that version, but I don't know how. Can anyone point me to a page where I can download that version of Thunderbird?

I installed version 78.2.0 and it seems to be working so far. I turned off automatic updates in Thuderbird, so hopefully I won't have this kind of failure again in the future.

FWIW I have Thunderbird 78.7.1 running with Provider 78.0.1 running under Win 10/64 Slow Ring with no problems. Wondering if you might have a corrupt profile?

Maybe, but I'm not savvy enough to fix something like that. I'll just stay on the 78.2.0 version.

Okay, I've discovered that it is very hard to stay on the 78.2.0 version. Thunderbird keeps nagging me to update, and I can't find any way to turn off the nagging. Now it looks like I must have accidentally said yes once, and Thunderbird is telling me that it will update the next time I restart, which means I'll have to reinstall 78.2.0 again as soon as it does. Is there any way to tell Thunderbird I want to stay on my current version and please stop asking me to update?
