First time installing Firefox, I mis-entered email address. Wanted to correct. De-installed program, then re-installed. But I didn't get a clean slate. Firefox knew that I had an account. How to wipe slate clean and start completely fresh?

Chosen solution

There is no need to reinstall Firefox if you made error when typing the email address for a Firefox Account.
You can merely disconnect this account if possible (may not be possible because you can't confirm this invalid email address) and create a new account with the correct email address.

  • Options/Preferences -> Sync

In case of issues try to login to the Firefox Account via this website.
