How do I transfer my information from an inaccessible email to my new one?

Posted

My yahoo email is linked to an old phone that doesn't work and the number got disconnected. I cannot gain access to this email due to yahoo not having anything besides automated support. How do I register my new email in place of my old and not lose all my bookmarks and such?

How is this related to Firefox? You can access your Yahoo mail via web mail with any browser or phone. All you need are your Yahoo credentials.

Christ, Yahoo somehow messed up my backup email. It's missing the 26 in it, I also do not have access to the mobile phone to be able to use the push notification for a new device because the screen broke on my old phone. Due to this I can't access the email to verify my login on a new device for Firefox and can't get my bookmarks or saved pages. So this is why i need to change my registered email for my Firefox account. Any information on how would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

As said before, you can access your Yahoo email via webmail from any computer with a web browser.

I don't think you can change the email address you registered with for your Firefox account. You'd need to create a new Firefox account with the desired email address.
