Hello, My sync account was lock because the confirmation email was returned.

Here the message : "Sorry. We’ve locked your account. The confirmation email we sent to yourmail@mail.com was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data. If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account."

The "let us know" link goes to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/ homepage.

I fixed the email problem. I am looking for a way to re-send the confirmation email to unlock my sync account . I didn't find a link to do so, please could anyone point me on the right direction ?

Thanks a lot
