    Default asking for password with google contacts

    Hello,

    Just this morning when I started up thunderbird, it started asking for
    my password for my gmail account, but only for the contacts. It
    synchronizes gmail without a problem, and it also synchronizes the
    calendar without a problem.

    The only thing I did yesterday was on the calendar in gmail was create a
    new mailing list from existing contacts, and I added one contact. The
    mailing list is within the google contacts address book.

    I am using thunderbird 31.6, and the add on google contacts 0.7.12,
    which has not had an update since 6/23/2013. However, I have been
    synchronizing contacts just fine up until this morning, and I have not
    done a patch update yet today.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    This sounds like an addon issue
    a few people have reported it

    you should ask here
    at the addon developers blog

    Looks like there is still a problem in tbird. I deleted the "google
    contacts" add on after reading the above blog, as it is clear the add on
    isn't being updated. I then installed "gContactSync", which works better
    but isn't perfect.

    It had to download the address book from google again, and it is syncing
    ok. There are some issues but I won't go into that here.

    I still have an issue with the google contacts add-on. Even though it is
    completely deleted from my thunderbird program, and I deleted the old
    address book, whenever I restart thunderbird, it recreates the old
    address book (as an empty address book), and asks for my password again.

    Anyone know how to remove the old address book completely so that it is
    not looking for it anymore?
