in my case it's Windows XP and Thunderbird version 188.8.131.52 (20080708).
it's not exactly the same, because i have this problem only with my
google imap account. from time to time thunderbird asks for my password
(and it keeps asking for a while like if i was wrong with my attempt). i
assume it might be caused by some errors/inactivity from gmail imap
server, but asking for the password over and over again is a serious bug
that blocks entire application (thunderbird).
more people have this issue:
** Description changed:
Binary package hint: thunderbird
I have 5 email accounts. But when I try to receive emails, it always asks for my password about a dozen times.
I use Password Manager, but it still asks me for passwords for my various email accounts.
I left Thunderbird open overnight. The next day it had over 100 dialog boxes open asking me for a password.
The title bar of one of them said "Enter your password: <104>".
I clicked the "Cancel" button for over 80 of them. At number <19> it
got stuck, and would not exit from this dialog box. Both the "Cancel"
and "OK" buttons got no response. And I could not exit from
Thunderbird, which is its normal behaviour when its waiting for a
password, but which was a problem at this time. I had to use "KDE
System Guard" to kill the process.
I am using Thunderbird "184.108.40.206" with Kubuntu "8.04.1".
