Cannot update secondary email

Hi forum The email provider for my preferred secondary email address uses greylisting. It works, very well. The confirming email from firefox is sent from a random amazon address, which gets greylisted as intended. There's a 5 minute limit for entering the confirmation code, but greylisting slows delivery of the email to around 15 minutes, waiting for the amazon sending server to try multiple times. Is there another way to update the secondary email address ?

Did you anyway try to use this confirmation code as it is valid for longer than 5 minutes (probably about 20 minutes) ?

I tried this a few times, and eventually managed to receive (and enter) a confirmation code before it expired. All good. Thx for the help.
