Repeated login requests

I have one email address in regular use: xxxxx@ntlworld.com. I have had two other email addresses in the past (both gmail.com), neither of which have been used for at least a couple of years. But for the last several weeks, I have been getting repeated popup pages from Thunderbird nearly full screen interrupting anything else I am doing asking me to sign into my Google account using one of the redundant addresses. If I ignore this and close the window, it pops up again a few seconds later. If I log in as requested, it is replaced by another page requesting permission for Mozilla Thunderbird to "Read, compose, send, and permanently delete all your email from Gmail". This I have denied as it seems an unwarranted intrusion. But the requests for login using the redundant address continue every few seconds. How can I prevent this, and allow the redundant email address to rest in peace? Or, how can I delete the redundant addresses permanently?

I've removed your email address which should never be posted on a public forum as it will be harvested by spammers.

If you don’t need it on a regular basis, remove it from thunderbird and use a browser when you need it

Sorry for a stupid question! A little application of intelligence led me to the account settings where I have successfully deleted the account. Life is now much quieter! Thank you Dave.

You haven’t used your Google account for some time & have no emails being sent/received then Google may have closed the account.
Another suggestion is that someone has access to your account details & are trying to sign in, hence why you’re being asked for confirmation.
