Cannot sign in to mozilla support

Posted

Cannot sign into Support with an old Username and password... have tried to renew password, but Support did not send anything to my email address - which would seem to indicate that they no longer have any records of my previous Log-in details; admittedly my last Log-in was maybe 10 years ago...

I'm not entirely certain if this is the case for you, but it's possible that your account was removed. A while ago, Mozilla tried moving the support site to another service. I don't believe that they transferred all of the accounts over.

However, it's also possible that they simply removed your account for inactivity.

Many thanks for the prompt reply. I think that you are correct. In the meantime I followed instructions I found somewhere here and opened a new account by posting the above query.

So, problem solved. Many thanks to all.

If you know the exact spelling of the old account name then manually put the name of end of this url. If the account exists then it will load the account profile page.
