Try deleting your existing password in the password manager, closing TB
and trying again. TB should prompt you for a new username and password &
from then on you should be ok. Note: can't verify as I do not have a
news.individual.net. I do however, have a news.eternal-september.org
account that requires a username & password and that works fine for me.
