Thanks for letting me know about this.  I pushed versions 3.0.0a8 and 2.0.13 with the fix.  If you're on the beta channel you should get the update soon, otherwise 2.0.13 will be updated whenever it gets reviewed.

Occasionally.  The last few months have been really busy at work.

I can confirm this bug. I'm using Thunderbird 57.0b2 (32-bit) and gContactSync doesn't work, breaking the address book functionality too.

Bugs and Enhancements / TB57.0b1 and gContactsSync extension
« Last post by tibitts on November 12, 2017, 03:25:05 AM »
With TB57.0b1 the gContactsSync extension is broken. Upon opening the
address book window, it neither shows any address books nor contacts.

Disabling the extensions restores the address book to normal, but
obviously without the syncing functionality.
Please update the extension for TB57.

I have installed Thunderbird on 3 PC's, all running Windows 10.  I have then copied my profile to each of them and set profile.ini to point to it.  The profile includes four email acconts, one of which is gmail.  All works well on 2 PC's.  However, I can't configure gContactSync on the third.  When I install the add-on and restart Thunderbird the gContactSync Wizard dialog opens, asking me to select the account to sync.  It gives the option to use an existing account or a new account.  The dropdown box under existing lists three accounts, but not the gmail account.  If I enter the gmail as a new account then click Next a Sign In dialog opens showing the gmail account.  However, none of the links of buttons works, so I can't progress to Next. All I can do is close or cancel the dialog to return to Thunderbird.

All the email accounts work, so I can send and receive to them all, including the gmail account.

Each time I re-open Thunderbird the gContactSync Wizard open, but it never shows the gmail account, and if I enter it manually then progress to the Sign In dialog it always hangs.
Found the same problem with:
OS: Ubuntu 16.04
TBird: 52.4.0 (64 bit)
gContactSync: 2.0.12
Help / Comparing Address Books / Contacts between Thunderbird and Google
« Last post by ivath0 on October 24, 2017, 04:54:04 AM »
I'm new to gContactSync and to Google Contacts and am struggling to compare the two sets of Address Books / Contacts.

Before I started with this Google sync I had one T/B Address Book that contained all my contacts included manual and collected additions. That is what I'm wanting to restore.

I started by exporting that T/B Address Book to Google. Now I have a confused mess:

In T/B: I see the Main Book(same as the exported Book); The Book I exported to Google, copied back as an 'Imported' Book; 'Personal' Book containg manual additions; 'Collected' Book containing new email contacts.
In Google: I see 'Contacts' as the Book that was imported; The 'Imported' Book; 'Other' Book containing the contacts in the T/B 'Collected' Book.  I do not see the contacts manually added to the T/B 'Personal Book'.

How to I simplify this arrangement to attain my objective of one Address Book in T/B reflected exactly in Google?

Same here.  I go to New Account, my gmail account is displayed, I click Next, and it freezes.  Never had this problem with gcontactsync before.  Any ideas?  Thanks.
