Hi, is the primary email address on your account a Gmail address? Google has been having some outages. The Gmail server may be rejecting messages to your account from the Firefox Account server, or the problem may be very intermittent.

I suggest waiting until we hear more from the Firefox Accounts team on whether they can do something on the back end for all Gmail users affected by lockouts.
