Actual results:

When there is something wrong with connection/auth, Thunderbird shows "Login to account X failed" popup. The popup has "Retry" , "Enter New Password" and "Cancel" possibilities.
I click "Enter new password", and popup disappears. Nothing else happens and after a minute the popup appears again.

Expected results:

Some UI, asking for new password, must appear immediately on "Enter new password" button. No connection retries must be done until user directly initiates them.

I'm having the same issue after upgrading from 78 -> 91.

I cannot reset my outgoin SMTP server password anywhere, it does not show in the saved passwords list nor anywhere.

I've now downgraded back to 78 which does not have this issue.
