Live Chat?

Posted

Doesn't Firefox have a "Live Chat" option for solutions to problems that crop up suddenly??? I can't find one anywhere.....and I need one. I keep getting "unknown login key" for a website that I've been on a lot. Don't understand why it doesn't work anymore......Anybody have a solution?
