Go to TOOLS > OPTIONS >SECURITY > PASSWORDS tab> SAVED PASSWORDS button and there you can delete old passwords. Restart Thunderbird to ensure that the stored password is cleared from memory. The next time you "Get Mail" Thunderbird will ask for the password and you can check the box to remember the value.

Oops. Sorry, I see that you said that.

And you are, in fact, logged in. So what's the problem?

Hi,
I see that you have tried logging in with 2 different systems, as your User Agent displays.
> Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 4.1.2; en-ca; GT-N8010 Build/JZO54K) AppleWebKit/534.30 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Safari/534.30
> Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/56.0.2924.87 Safari/537.36

This may be the problem, coz when I changed my UA or Firefox version, I had to log back in.
Wait for confirmation from a more knowledgeable user?
