Hello :) How u doing today? :) Im trying to sign-in on my Old Firefox Sync account but it says to enter the authorization code which i cant access my email to get it...i tryed long time ago to change my email but i couldnt and i have 3 suggestions to u and they are: - You can u change my email address - You can remove the authorization code confirmation page - You can permenatly delete or terminate my account on <sensitive data removed> Because u know my email AND GOD THE GREATFUL is unactive or u know what?! U can make Mobile Authorization Code instead of The mail by entering the mobile number...it would be much better,easier,simplier and faster!! Also AS WELL!! But THEY ARE NOT ANSWERING ME AND WHEN I TRY TO ASK THIS QUESTION I CANT ASK IT BECAUSE I CANT SIGN IN IT SAYS WRONG PASSWORD BUT ITS CORRECT!!!!!!! THROUGHT EMAIL AND THEIR SUPPORT WEBSITE!!!!!

Hi

If you type about:preferences#sync into the address bar on a desktop copy of Firefox (that you are signed into with your Firefox Account) and select Manage Account, you will be taken to a page where you can delete your account.

I recommend leaving it a day or two, then setting up a new account for an email address that you currently use.

I hope this helps, but if not, please come back here and we can look into a different solution for you.

I think your postings of a racist nature on other threads on this forum preclude your continued right to have an account here. What say you to that?
