I was using firefox sync across multiple devices, but at some point in the past few months, i got locked out on one device due to too many wrong tries (i THINK. something went wrong anyway), and now, i am logged on on only 1 computer, and none of my passwords (even the one currently saved in my password manager, 1password) work when trying to log into other devices. using the QR scan from firefox/pair page on my ph doesn't work either.
so, now i'm afraid of getting logged out from my main computer and then losing access to years worth of bookmarks & folders & plug-ins etc.
unfortunately, when i went to try & add a back up email for my account, it was too late...it kept asking me to log in to do so, and my password isn't recognized anymore (or i maybe inadvertently changed w/ a typo inserted?). i was thinking about just trying to download all my bookmarks, deleting my current account, and creating a new one...but then i need the log in to delete the account.
i want to keep the same email for the user name, since it's my main email.
i am at a loss as to how i can get around this impasse.
