User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_7_4) AppleWebKit/536.11 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/20.0.1132.57 Safari/536.11

Steps to reproduce:

I updated Thunderbird to 14 and upgraded Lightning to version 1.6 as suggested.


Actual results:

My google calendars don't work as they used to any more. When starting up Thunderbird all seems. I can see all my google calendars.

However after a while they simply disappear from my calendar views (both the Calendar tab as well as the Event list).

Restarting Thunderbird resolves the issue for another hour or so, then they disappear again.

" When starting up Thunderbird all seems." should say " When starting up Thunderbird all seems fine."
How do you access Google Calendar? Are you using the built-in CalDAV provider or the additional Provider for Google Calendar extension? In that case: what version of the extension?

Can you specify when the events disappear? Is it for example related to the reload interval set for the calendar? Or maybe the internet connection is lost and Lightning switches to offline mode?

Do you see any calendar related error messages in Tools > Error Console?

Yes, I'm using Google Calendar version 0.13. However that wasn't updated recently - I was using that with Lightning 1.5 as well.

I'll look out for when the events disappear. It might be related to a dropping internet connection. The definitely didn't come back even when the connection was working. Also clicking 'Synchronize Calendars' didn't help. I'll post back when I have more details (the Error Log didn't have the events any more).

It's happened again. It could be related to a network blip, but I'm not 100% sure.
The log doesn't say much, I do see:
Timestamp: 20/07/2012 12:10:51
Warning: There has been an error reading data for calendar: Davids Google Calendar.  However, this error is believed to be minor, so the program will attempt to continue. Error code: 0x804b000d. Description:

Like before, my google calendars refuse to show up after disappearing from view. Clicking Synchronize has no effect. Restarting Thunderbird resolves it however...

After looking at it for some time it seems that the disappearance is *only* related to the Google Calendar entries. Other ical entries don't suffer from it. As I'm using the Provider for Google Calendar 0.13 it might be releated to that component.
Component: General → Provider: GData

Just a little update on this. It is still happening with Thunderbird 16.0.2, Lightning 1.8 and Provider for Google Calendar 0.17. Although it seems that it's happening a little less often.

I just updated to Lightning 1.9 today and all mein Google Calendar entries vanished. Similar issue? Restarting doesn't solve it neither does resetting the calendar to a new URL...

I had this too, but updating to Provider for Google Calendar 0.18 got my google calendar entries back.

I can't say that this fixes the issue that this bug is about though as that only happens every now and then.

Ah thanks a lot. I updated to 0.18 and the entries appeared back again.

In fact I can confirm that the main problem described in this bug still occurs with Thunderbird 17, lightning 1.9 and Provider for Google Calendar 0.18. The disappearance of entries only applies to Google Calendar-provided ones.

I wonder if this is related to bug 813948
This issue was fixed with the Provider for Google Calendar 1.0.2, I am therefore closing this bug.
