Changing primary email
Hi Team - I would like to change the primary email address on this Mac Mini to the one I use on other devices. When I add the secondary email address I get a message, "Account already exists" and the address is not accepted. I guess I could Delete Account and start again but that seems a bit drastic and I don't know what data might be lost. Any pointers please? Thanks, Ian.

This is the instruction on changing Primary email from Firefox FAQ:
Firefox Accounts lets you add a secondary email address as a backup in case you lose access to your primary email address. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-secondary-email-address-firefox-accounts
Changing Primary password will delete all other sync devices data connected to it. I only use primary login so beyond what the link says about secondary email is what Firefox FAQ says.
Hi cor-el - Thanks for your help. Yes, I am able to log in to my "main" account from this Mac. But if I then try to change this computer's primary email via the menu icon or add a secondary email, I still can't. The main account has a secondary email that is different to the primary on this computer. If I change it to this device's primary might that help? Ian.
