Mozilla firefox help database instructed us to access option-sync tab as follow to reset password 1. Click the menu button New Fx Menu and choose Options. 2. On the Sync tab, click Sign in to open the Sign in page. 3. On the Sign in page, click Forgot password? Firefox will send you a reset email. 4. Follow the instructions in your reset email to change your password.

but in my firefox 36.0.4 there isn't any Sign in link, just Manage firefox account link. Clicked Manage to open manage account page, still can't find "Forgot password" link as stated above. So how do we reset password to sync? Please advise anyone.

Thanks a lot bro. At last. But firefox sign-out is confusing. Instead of sign-out link/button, firefox used "disconnect" which I was a bit wary of clicking. Anyway, thank you.
