mail.yahoo.com login pops up a browser which demands "to enable cookies"
I'm using the same Yahoo mail account for many years. It stopped working around 28 Jan. 2021. Instead of the regular password menu, Yahoo's email account opens a new window of a browser and offers to so login on mail.yahoo.com page. When I try to fill up the credentials (as I do in a regular browser) it demands to enable "cookies". Which cookies, how to enable them in that static browser window? I tried to temporary relax my setting on Firefox but that had no effect. All soft is updated.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Allow cookies in Thunderbird Options/Privacy & Security, Mail Content, to allow the OAuth2 authentication to complete (in the OAuth browser window).
