Can't add a gmail account. Gmail seems to think that cookies are blocked but they're not.

Posted

I'm trying to add a gmail account to thunderbird via 'Set Up an existing Email Account' dialog. The gmail logon info is correct. The config info for gmail is found in the Mozilla database.

Pressing 'Done' results in a popup saying 'You've reached this page because we have detected that cookies are disabled in your browser. The page you've attempted to load cannot display properly'

Cookies are set to Standard in 'Privacy & Security' What am I doing wrong?

I don't know what that means. You'll need to be more specific. It may help to post a screenshot of your Thunderbird cookie setting. https://support.mozilla.org/kb/how-do-i-create-screenshot-my-problem
