When I use multi-line descriptions in an event, they are all presented in one line as of version Thunderbird 91.2.0. This happens to calendars imported by Google. Description lines are correctly split by "\n", and the end of the message is correctly terminated by 0x0D, 0x0A. Only Thunderbird presents these one-line notes in an event. iOS, macOS, Google calendar web interface, ... all showing correctly multi-lines.

Please advise.

You create the event in the Google Calendar in Thunderbird or the web interface?

Could you provide a short multi-line description for testing?

I'm not in the habit of using /n, or OxOD, or OxOA in my descriptions when I create an event in my Google calendar in Thunderbird,
Linux Desktop - AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 455 3.3GHz | 8.0GB RAM | GeForce GT 630
Windows Notebook - AMD A8 7410 2.2GHz | 6.0GB RAM | AMD Radeon R5
