TB using POP3 with Gmail.

I have just changed my gmail password..and now although I have deleted every saved password in Thunderbird, and re-enter the correct one, I continually get this message from TB when I try to download emails (using POP)

[i]Sending of password for user gnlh01@gmail.com did not succeed. Mail server pop.googlemail.com responded: Web login required: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/78754[/i]
runs Chrome 59, Thunderbird 52 32bit, Windows 7 (64bit), uses TB with POP not IMAP

I have recently resolved this matter: in my case it was necessary to go into the Gmail "my Account", then "sign in and security", page down to "Connected apps and sites"settings, and select "allow less secure apps" - turn it ON
