System: Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS Thunderbird: 78.1.0 64bit version

Description: I used Thunderbird to log in to Google Mail without any problems. But after I changed my Google mailbox password once, I want to use Thunderbird to log in to Google mailbox again. It keeps asking me to enter my Google email address. Every time I clicked on the next step, the email address input field seemed to be emptied. I was still asked to continue to enter the email address without entering the password input or other interface.

First image is before I click the next button, the second image is after i clicked the next button
