I would like to change the email entry in my firefox sync account. Is this possible, or do I need to create a new account? Thanks

If,   before creating a new account,   you've backed up your data,   they will automatically be transferred to your new Sync account.

Thanks for this disappointing piece of information :) Is there a way to transfer data from one account to the other? Particularly the saved login information. Thanks

Yes! You can change the email address of your Firefox account.

Read below steps or go to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-primary-email-address-firefox-accounts

1. Go to the following URL. https://accounts.firefox.com/settings?canChangeEmail=true

2. Add Secondary Email if you have not yet added any. (complete the verification also)

3. Refresh the page and you can see "Make Primary" option against your secondary email address. You can click on it to change the email address of firefox account.
