Why does my address shown under "Firefox Accounts" differ from my actual address?

This is shown when I go to Firefox Accounts -> Settings -> Connected Services while signed in to my Firefox acct with my e-mail.

It shows my computer name, and underneath it the following address: Boardman, OR, United States.

I am about 1,500 miles away from Boardman, I have never lived in, nor visited Boardman OREGON, so I'd like to know how this address showed up there, and of course, how I might be able to change it to the correct one.

If this is an indication that someone or something is bugging my computer, I'd like to know that too.

Thank you for your question. Our Firefox Accounts team are aware of this and hope to release a fix for this very soon.
