A good friend tried to configure Thunderbird to access her gmail account
on my computer. Easy, right! No.

After typing the basic information in the account "wizard", a TB message
I have never seen before appeared.

Window title: "Give credentials for [account name] in imap.gmail.com".

In something that looks like a menu bar, there is
https://accounts.google.com./o/nocookie written.

The window text is:

Você chegou a esta página porque detectamos que os cookies estão
desativados no seu navegador. Não será possível exibir corretamente a
página que você tentou carregar se os cookies estiverem desativados.

Ative os cookies e repita a operação ou volte para o navegador.

Which can be summarized as:

Cookies are disabled in your browser. Not possible to show the page
you tried to load if cookies are disabled.

Enable cookies and try again, or go back to your browser.

My gmail account never needed that to be accessed in any manager! How to
I solve it? (enabling cookies in TB is not an option)

After several days with this problem, I gave up. B-U-T enabling cookies in Thunderbird does *not* solve the situation! It simply does not progress. When I click in the account to access it, the login page window appears with the email address written with some "CaPs ArT" in it. I click next... but nothing happens! No page to write password, or something (what?) else that could happen after the address.

What can I do now? I want to access this gmail account as the other account I normally access in TB! Simple as that!


Try a new profile, don't make any changes.

Create your gmail account.
Create her gmail account.

Let us know what happens.
