How do I resolve "Unverified session" error when attempting to change my Firefox account password?

Posted

I am attempting to change my Firefox account password. I followed the steps listed in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-your-firefox-accounts-password, unsuccessfully. When I enter my current password, then the new password and confirm, I get the error "Unverified session". I can reset my recovery key in the same browser tab, but I can't change my password. Why not?
