RESOLVED: Gmail Problems (after enabling and using IMAP)

I just spent a half hour using IMAP in Mozilla Thunderbird Portable Edition. After using it for a little bit, I decided I wanted to check that the changes I made in Thunderbird were in fact reflected in the webmail.
After attempting to log in it appeared that nothing happened. I tried this multiple times to no avail. I then entered an incorrect password to see if anything was happening and sure enough I got an error that the password was wrong. I have since submitted an error notification to Google and am expecting a response any day now.

Well, I (sort of) found out what was causing my Gmail webmail account to stop letting me log in. I had to delete all of the cookies related to Google. After I did that I was instantly able to log in.
