Firefox account duplicate ?

When attempting to add an Ipad to Mozilla vpn I seem to have created a new Firefox account with the same primary email address as my original (all of my profile is unset). When I now login to the account I end up in the new account and cannot access the original. However, when I try and delete the new account the new password is rejected and I suspect it wants the password from the original account - I do not want to test this as I do not want to lose my vpn. I am sure that there is confusion between the new and the old since I cannot set up the new account with the same secondary email address as the old one as it claims a user already has an account with this secondary address.

Any ideas on how I can get rid of the new account, if it is new, or clean it up so that I can restore it to the original ?

Note when I logged on this morning I got back to my original account. This question does not appear under my questions so I suspect that there is still a duplicate (shadow) account.
