Firefox Sync verification process is cycling

Posted

I type my password to login to Firefox Sync, get sent a verification code, I input the code, and am asked for a password again. I put my password again, I am sent another verification code, and am sent to login page again as if nothing happened. The cycle doesn't end until I'm locked out of the account for trying too many times.

(Of course, this is not for the account I am currently posting from, which I just created.)

EDIT: I was using the wrong password the whole time... That was weird.

re-sync requires a verification code to be sent by email, after receving , that if it says it is invalid that would allow me to go into Gmail ----> Settings ---> Accounts & Import----> Check email from other accounts ---> and then order Gmail to perform a special immediate mailcheck on my selected account. As a slow elderly old codger myself,maximum it will take 10 mins..

It's not that the verification code is invalid. It's that when I enter it, I get taken back to the page where I'm supposed to enter the password.
