Firefox uses a wrong account for my passwords that I cannot change
When I want to see the passwords Firefox has stored I have to log in with my account. I made an account with the email adress I normally use (address 1). But that is not the account / email address that I have to fill when I want to see the password. It is a MS email address I had to make for MS but never use (address 2). I cannot change or remove that address (2) as it does not show when I go to Account settings. Then just the account with the address 1 shows. Any tip how to deal with that?

In case you want to disable this feature :
Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter.
(ignore the warning)
Type in the search bar and look for the preference :
Change its value to false.
Then close and restart Firefox.
(this preference may be removed sometime in the near future )
