old connected services
So I've been doing a lot of distro-hopping over the last couple of years and every install has an instance of firefox + assorted info in the "Connected Services" list. I can log out of them individually, but this is going to take a daft amount of time. I really do mean "a lot of distrohopping". There must be at least 300 entries, probably more. Can I 'log out of all devices' and then back in to clear the list? The alternative would seem to be to export everything, then make a new account and import it back.
As an aside, in the course of chasing this feature down I discovered that it's no longer possible to remove old devices from your Google account.
Thanks I've been a firefox user since the first Beta of the then named Mozilla Sunbird. Always loved it. Always recommended it to anyone who would stand still long enough to listen, as the saying goes.

As a Linux user myself and someone who remembers the Sunbird calender app well - welcome!
I do not think there is any way to remove all of those connections in bulk. I think you will have to remove them manually. Yes, you could open a new account, but your email address will be linked to your current live account unless you delete your account first (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-delete-my-firefox-account).
I hope that this helps.
I think it would make sense for Firefox Accounts to "expire" old connections after several months of inactivity, but I'm not aware of a way to do that.
You can try to reset the password of the Sync account to see if that makes disconnecting all devices because that would require to login again with the new password.
I have a list of 6 connected services, 2 are in Blue. What does that mean? Are these the connected items? Or the NOT connected items? Also, I found 2 connected services with my name on them connecting to Firefox Accounts. Why? 1. "Rhonda" next to a PC icon 2. "Rhonda on Firefox Rhonda" shown next to a PC icon.
Can you please help me?
