I got a new computer and got Firefox but when I go to login, it always tries to make a new account instead of login. It will never give me an option to login when all I want to do is login. Is there some button I am missing or a website I need to go to to login?

Does your menu have that?

It does but going one step forward brings me to entering an email to create an account.

Hmm, if the site recognizes your email address as being associated with an existing account, then it should ask you to sign in to it. Is it possible to you created the account under a different email address?
