My correct gmail password works fine on my iPhone, my laptop computer, and via web browser login. On 12/17/17 it stopped working in Thunderbird on my desktop.

Although my password for a gmail account works fine on my iPhone, works fine via Thunderbird on my laptop computer, and works fine via browser login at gmail, it is not working via Thunderbird on my desktop computer. The e-mail account and password are also missing from my Thunderbird list of saved passwords. This change occurred on December 17th, in the morning.

re :gmail, it is not working via Thunderbird on my desktop computer.....The e-mail account and password are also missing from my Thunderbird list of saved passwords.

If the password is not stored in Thunderbird, then TB is not automatically going to be able to use something that does not exist.

Do you use a product like CCleaner ? If yes, then it is highly likely that it removed those files. It is real nuisance as it can mess up passwords, session data and stored preferences. Do not allow products like CCLeaner to scan any Thunderbird file or folder.

In the desktop Thunderbird is the gmail account visible in the folder pane ?

You mention that you use several devices and also a phone. Q: Have you set up gmail to use a 'Two step verification' process? If yes, then you would need to use 'an application specific password' and not the password you would use to access webmail.

When you select the account and click on 'Get Messages', are you asked to enter the password ? If yes, enter the password and select the checkbox for Password Manager to remember the password and then click on OK.

It would also be helpful if you post this info so we can understand the Account settings you are using.

In Thunderbird Help > Troubleshooting Information click on the 'copy text to clipboard' button In this forum question, right click in a 'Post a Reply' text box and select 'Paste' You can remove all info on fonts and printers, but nothing else.

Thank you for responding to my plea for help. Unfortunately, I am still unable to access the gmail account. Please allow me to respond to your questions and suggestions:

<When you select the account and click on 'Get Messages', are you asked to enter the password ? If yes, enter the password and select the checkbox for Password Manager to remember the password and then click on OK.>

Following your suggestion, I successfully added the login and password into the saved passwords. However, even after closing Thunderbird, rebooting my computer, and verifying that the new password is still among the saved passwords, I get the same response to the auto-logon and to a re-entered password.

   <Do you use a product like CCleaner ?>  No, I do not.
   <Q: Have you set up gmail to use a 'Two step verification' process?> No, I have not; and there is no 'Two Step Verification' employed on other devices.
   <In the desktop Thunderbird is the gmail account visible in the folder pane ?> Yes it is. 

The Troubleshooting information is below. I did not delete anything.

There are eight (8) e-mail accounts in Thunderbird. In 'Mail and News Accounts' below, nine accounts are listed. I have no idea what causes 'Account 2', as there is no such account. The problem account is the one shown as 'Account3.'

Could Thunderbird be trying to access 'Account2' when I attempt to open 'Account3?'

If the problem was with Account4 - Account9, I would not be opposed to just deleting and recreating the troublesome e-mail account in Thunderbird. Unfortunately, 'Account3' has a lot of stored resource e-mails and folders that I really, really do not want to lose.

I notice that the Troubleshooting information indicates that there was a crash on December 16th. Could this have been the prelude to my problems, which became apparent to me on December 17th? Is there a way to open the crash report?

Thank you very much for your time and effort on this problem.

Try again. It obviously didn't make it to this forum.

The extra account is almost certainly the built-in Local Folders account.

Try what again??

Here is a quote of where you claim to have posted he troubleshooting info at 2:05. Can you point it out? I cannot seem to find it.

Try changing the Authentication Method for your Gmail accounts to Oauth2 instead of normal password.

Airmail, if you can see my post at 7:50am on 1/1/18 and you can quote me, then you can see my reposted troubleshooting info.

How does one change the Authentication Method?

more options

Right click the account on the left in the folder Pane and select server settings. You change the incoming settings there. Now scroll to the bottom of the folder Pane and select Outgoing(SMTP) Change the outgoing there.

Of course I see when you posted your troubleshooting info at 9:50. That is how we finally got to see your settings. Posted, not reposted. That is the only time it appears in this thread

Airmail, I have been dealing with this problem for more than two weeks. You are no help.

How do I get Toad-Hall re-engaged on this issue? Toad-Hall seemed to genuinely want to help solve the problem, without looking for a fight or feeling that he needed to make Thunderbird users bow to his brilliance.

In more than nine years of using Thunderbird, I have never before sought support. I have to say that this support system is disappointing.
