How can the 5 minute timeout on sync verification code be increased to 10 minutes in view of delay receiving code by email?

Veröffentlicht

Due to problems with upgrading my Ubuntu to 18.04, I've been forced to use a LIVE DVD for the last 8 months instead of a properly installed Ubuntu. This LIVE DVD crashes or drops out from time to time so each time this happens I have to re-sync the Firefox it brings up. This re-sync requires a verification code to be sent by email, but because that email has to go through my Google filtering process, it usually takes longer than the code's 5 minute validity before I receive it. When I do finally get it and enter the received code back in Firefox, I'm told the code is invalid or expired. This is because 5 minutes validity is just too short a time for my setup. If it were 10 minutes, that would allow me to go into Gmail -> Settings -> Accounts & Import -> Check email from other accounts -> and then order Gmail to perform a special immediate mailcheck on my selected account. As a slow elderly old codger myself, I find it too hard to do all this within 5 minutes. Why can't we make it 10 mins?

Thank you for the feedback, and I have reposted my above question on the link provided in the hope that some kindly soul there will forward it to whoever is responsible for setting that 5 minute timeout. I was really hoping someone on this support forum would be able to do that for me, since the task is too difficult for me to undertake and follow through myself due to my personal senile cognitive disabilities

The timeout time for a the verification code is entirely determined by the Firefox Accounts system and can't be adjusted by the user.
