Dear Sir,

I have my firefox username and password. However, whenever I try to sign in nowadays, I am asked to enter a verification code that is sent to my email address within five minutes. The email does arrive, but never withing 5 minutes. I have tried it many times on different devices. It may be my email issue. However, I cannot change the email account unless I cannot log it. Since I cannot receive the verification code within 5 minutes, I am unable to change any of my personal details.

Please advise.

Yours sincerely, Tan Ngiap Heng

P.S. It was very difficult gettting to this support page. I was asked to log in and verify before continuing for some of the support pages. But like I mentioned, I am unable to receive the verification code within 5 minutes. So I am thankful for this page.

  Thanks in advance for your help.

However, when I enter a secondary email, (AlexR@currently.com) a red popup message says: account already exists.

How can I eliminate msrigg@pacbell.net? How can I replace it with AlexR@currently.com?

I tried multiple times to sign up using my email address that uses the domain @sleepy.fish. I was slightly tipped off when firefox attempted to ask if I had made a mistake entering my email... i tried multiple ways to get the verification emails send both via web client and ios app and it simply would not send. To sanity check I created a new account using an old @gmail.com address and immediately got the verification email.

I'm kinda migrating off of mega corp google products though, hence the signing up for firefox sync haha. Would be great if I could figure out how to ensure delivery of the verification email so I can complete account setup with my custom domain email

Hi, Approximately 8 years ago, I deleted my google account, which I use on firefox. And 5 years ago, I lost my computer as well. When I tried to sync firefox data on my new computer, firefox asked me to verify via email, which is deleted. I have no longer an access to my google account to verify, and the only way to sync my old firefox account is losing my old data. I had to create a new firefox account. Is there any way to restore my profile data? (Note: I am sending this question via the same account that I need to restore profile data from). Regards

My ISP deleted the email address that was used as the primary email on my Firefox account. This happened unexpectedly and I was unable to get it reactivated. As such, I cannot make any changes to my Firefox account, because everything requires an email code. I read on other forums that changing the primary email is impossible without access to the current email. So I tried to delete my account altogether and create a new one. But I can't do that either. It's unacceptable to have my account just floating in limbo. It needs to be updated with correct information, or it needs to be deleted. How can I correct this problem?

Hi

First of all sorry if my English is not correct. I have a problem trying to login to an old firefox account, though I remember the password I cannot change or add a new email because the primary email from the old account is from a email service that no longer exist (openmailbox.org), so I cannot receive the security code. Although I have a new firefox account with other mail that I use regularly, I need to access to my old account to recover an old login. Is there something that can be done or I lost my old data forever?

Hello, I have had a firefox account for many years and during this time I changed my email address in firefox. With the newest update I have been logged out and I am unable to get back in.

Now if I try to log in with the original email address it says "Primary account email required for sign-in" and if I try my current email (which should be the primary) then it asks me to create a new account.

My account is lost somewhere in between! Please help

Hi there,

I have a Firefox account which was registered using an email associated with a company I no longer work for. Since I have left the company, that email is inactive and I can no longer access it. This means that when I attempt to log into Firefox with that account, I cannot enter the verification / 2FA code because I cannot access the email.

Is there anyway I can close that Firefox account anyway? I do have the Firefox recovery key for that account though. I just wish for all the data associated with said account to be deleted.

Thanks
