Adding gmail accounts ends on redirect to localhost
Hi, I just installed the newest Thunderbird 91.2.0 and I try to add my gmail account with oauth2 authentication. Everything goes smooth until I press "Allow" on the Google permission page. Then I'm redirected to the https://localhost/?code=4%2F0.... And that's it. No account created.
This is a fresh Thunderbird installation. No settings are changed. All cookies allowed.
Thanks for any help, Bartek

That sounds like the sort of thing an anti virus using localhost as a system proxy might cause.
I don't have any additional Antiviruses app except this from Windows 10. Also no any proxy installed/configured.
I tried on Ubuntu and here it works fine. The account is created. So what can wrong on Windows 10?
this might help... if that is the source of the issue. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/how-to-reset-the-hosts-file-back-to-the-default-c2a43f9d-e176-c6f3-e4ef-3500277a6dae
