I'm starting gender transition, I prefer to have my name match my identity, but it's a long process to change a legal name. Is there a way to change it as a "to be changed to"?

Hello   Joey,

Would you do this please :

Click on your display name/avatar on the upper right side of this page;   then click on   "View" <big>→</big> "Edit Profile", and then click on the big blue button saying  "Manage Firefox Account".
There you will see the option to change our display name.
Your display name is the name people will see on the support forum.

Your username can only be changed by an administrator. If you want that changed as well; let me know and I will send you a private message.

Go to the top of any support.mozilla.org web page and press your user icon to see your Mozilla profile. Including your questions and answers.

You should find what you want there.

Hello   NEILB,

I will forward this in an email to an administrator   (might take a while before you hear anything, though)

Hi folks,

Just wanted to let you all know that this work has been deployed in the staging site https://github.com/mozilla/sumo-project/issues/580 and you'll soon be able to update your username easily from profile setting.
