How to switch Google Calendar from agenda view to week view in Thunderbird

I recently installed the Google Calendar add on and I also noticed that it would only display the agenda view (as other reviews have previously stated here). I fixed this (on Linux) by editing “~/.thunderbird/locymkyh.default/session.json” and changing:

"tabURI":"https://www.google.com/calendar/m","clickHandler"

to

"tabURI":"https://www.google.com/calendar/render??#g%7Cweek-2+22889+22895+22892","clickHandler"

NOTE: The ‘/locymkyh.default/‘ part of the path is uniquely generated for each user profile so yours will be different. Use the following command in a terminal to see yours:

find ~/.thunderbird -type d -iname '*.default'

Also, I don’t know what “week-2+22889+22895+22892” means to Google, but I don’t think it matters. This change should at least get Google Calendar to switch from the mobile agenda view to the desktop week view. If you have problems then try removing “-2+22889+22895+22892“. With and without the numbers worked for me.

    If you see the message “Browser doesn’t support notifications,” your browser needs to be updated before you can get Google Calendar notifications.
