Fresh install of Arch Linux, fresh install of thunderbird but I can't login via wizard to my gmail-account. It simply says that my login/password is incorrect. "configuration could not be verified"

I found this hint, but its not working for me:

I do NOT have an 2-way-login activated, where I need to create a application-password. Else k-9 mail on Android works fine.

I tried thunderbird-earlybird from AUR with no luck.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
-Use Wizard
-try to login to your gmail-account
This task depends upon

With 2-way-login and application-password thunderbird works. So I think there might be an problem with password-encoding, because the application-password do not contain special characters, my gmail-password do.
