[Gmail] Impossible to validate Gmail account configuration on Gmail pop-up, getting stuck on email address

Hi! I've just been willing to configure my Gmail address under Thunderbird, and got stuck at the Google email validation pop-up.

Everything goes well until this pop-up appears, where Google is asking for the email address (which is automatically filled in), and then theoretically its related password.

What happens is that once I validate the email address and click "Next" to type in my password, the page reloads the email address validation field, leaving me stuck at this stage with the impossibility of validating my Google email-password validation.

I don't know for what reason I can't see the password field after validating the email one. It seems to work fine on other apps. My current hypothesis is that there is a cookie setting or a blocker on the Thunderbird pop-up that prevents the Google validation from proceeding correctly…

Would you have any idea of what is going on and any suggestions to configure my Gmail address another way?

Many thanks!
