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?

Thanks
