Thunderbird and Gmail Oauth2
Removed one of my gmail accounts from TB and when re-adding the account I get the message that i cant log in to the server. Probably wrong settings, username or password. Username is my gmail account and the password is correct. I think the problem is Oauth2. If I remember right I used to get an extra authentication from gmail when I add a new gmail account to TB, this doesent happen now. Imap is allowed on my gmail account. Cockies is allowed in TB. Whats wrong?

I'm using TB 78.5.1
Soon after TB updated 11/28/20 I lost the ability for my e-mail accts to access Gmail, coincidence? One acct was caught in a spinning loop so I deleted account and tried to re-instate. I get the same wrong password etc. I've checked manual configuration & OK. I've paused firewall & nothing. No VPN. I've deleted TB & reloaded, nothing. All other existing accts don't work either. The only thing I haven't tried yet is to use is scrubber like rovouninstaller to remove TB and then reload. Is it me or a bug between TB & Gmail? Ideas?
