    Default Problems with Thunderbird with gmail

    My son use thunderbird with a gmail account, and eversince Windows 10 update he can't access his account with thunderbird just won't accept his password.
    i have told him he can see gmail through his browser but he has got used to TB and prefers that!
    I've searched for an answer and it seems hard to try and find an answer, tried TB help and it gives you account to log into but doesn't give you option to open an account. So can't ask buggzilla.
    I know when you set up an imap with TB it then goes to gmail for permission and it just freezes.

    Might be the browser you're using to do it. Change the default browser. If another browser is installed

    My brother had this and found a fix himself.

    I think this is the video:

    It was to do with some extra security requirement anyway, and win10.

    Yeah what Piroska linked will be it. The windows 10 mail app fails until you do that as well so I have it set for mine.
