I have an apostrophe in my last name and my company email address uses it. I have difficulty signing up for a firefox account because it won't recognize that address. It says it is invalid. Is there a solution?

Hi LatteLove, a code fix has been created for this earlier today, but it's not live on the "create account" page yet. Maybe next week?

When you next try the page, please reload the page bypassing the cache -- either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+r
  • Shift+click the reload button in the toolbar
  • Ctrl+F5
