I extremely triggered of this extremely incomfort Mozilla support. Recently I log in in f****n@ya.ru account and wrote a 2 massages to one of users. Now I want to log in and see are my massages answered and see THAT: "The email used with this Firefox Account is already linked in another profile.", "This account is not active. Please contact an administrator if you believe this is an error". contact the administrator - WHERE is administrator email or ANYTHING that give me a possibility to contact him?! In any non-extremely uncomfort site there's will be a link in "contact an administrator" for I'm not be forced to turn the world upside down in search of this administrator. But there's no link. Ok, I find "contact" button, see standart "contact" page for big companies with large text instead of 1-3 emails, Ctrl+F "administrator" - no matches. WHO should I contact if I have this problem, why this site so intricate?!! Why it's saying "CONTACT administrator" without GIVING CONTACTS of administrator?!! Why can't I log in my account?!!

I have 2 PC's running Windows 7 with Firefox as my main browser. I have set up an account with Firefox and can log into my account on either PC with the same login credentials. I also have an eternal USB drive with Ubuntu latest version installed. Firefox is the default browser. When I try to log into my account, I get the "Unknown account" error. I have tried this many times, so I know that I have not made any mistakes transferring the data. I want to be able to sync my preferences, but cannot do so due to the error. I have even changed the password and verified that it worked on both Windows PC's but still get the error while in Ubuntu.

Any other suggestions?

thanks

attempting to login to Firefox sync I'm told the system has just locked my account - which is odd because I just logged in with the account to log this issue. Message is : "Sorry. We’ve locked your account.

The confirmation email we sent to xxxxxx@gmail.com was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account."

There is nothing wrong with my gmail account either - I checked gmail is not bouncing mail back sent to my address.

I have read this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/forum-response-firefox-sync-verifica...

I have tried waiting for more than 24h, not working, and submitted a request at Bugzilla (maybe it's because I didn't write the request in the right way so I haven't got response yet).

I have some so many bookmarks in my firefox account and passwords in my lockwise account. Please help me out, my account email is xxxxxxxxxx@xx.xxx

I am unable to login to firefox accounts .

I have the correct Email and Password, but it keeps asking me for the conformation code sent to the email for login, but i dont have access to the Email as the password is saved in sync server.

I mean the Lockwise Sync server. No i don't have any device currently logged in to Sync. I recently Formatted my PC, So all files for password manager were lost(I synced the logins to the server before formatting my pc hoping that the Login id and Password for the Accounts would be enough to retrieve them ) and am trying to retrieve the logins.

No luck with the login links i can login but cannot change anything in the settings, it says :

" NOTE: Before you can view or make changes to this section, you will need to verify your email address. "

So any way i try it is asking for the conformation code sent to my Email address Whose password is stuck in my sync server.

So its like


can't access the sync server -------because------- can't access my email for code------because--------can't access my firefox lockwise -------because-------can't access sync server

Need Help ASAP Please.

Hi, I have a problem with login in to my Firefox Sync Account, after clean installation of Windows 10. I have not recall to enable 2FA in Firefox Sync i have never used it to activate account on my PC or Android Phone. I'm using 2FA to my Google Account witch is the email for my Firefox Sync Account. But supposedlyi did.

I have tried to use keys generated by Google Authenticator (witch is only 2FA token I use, not counting Facebook App, witch I use only for FB) but no success. I tried to use this link https://accounts.firefox.com/signin and then use proper password. Then there is an information to check email for confirmation link. I get no email, noting in spam nothing nowhere. I did add the accounts@firefox.com email address to protect it from spam filters, but nothing in 4 days, waiting for a miracle. 

In an act of desperation i did change the password for the account. And i received email to confirm this chance witch a did. The email was send from accounts@firefox.com e-mail, and it arrived in my inbox immediately.

Why i do not get the confirmation email?

I had several weird things happen this morning with my Mozilla Browser. Ultimately I had to re-download it and I then tried to setup a Mozilla Account to hopefully secure it. When I entered my email address z @comcast.net I received the verification code in my inbox but the new account display gave error code email returned misspelled.

I'm afraid my browser was hacked for my saved bookmark information and access. When I did get it back after rebooting Mozilla requested a new profile so I created "default user - zisses no additional user".

I then went back in and created the support account under the email x @gmail.com - I have attached below both of the verification codes I recieived from trying to create the support account. The zpggre account does not grant me access so can you be sure someone isn't accessing my information with it's use and please let me know what if anything is fraudulent and shut if down?

I have an account with two emails: the primary one, which is no longer accessible, and the secondary one, which is the one I use now.

Unfortunately, I needed to reinstall Firefox due to some problems that seem to have disappeared, but now I forgot the password to the account. I try to use the secondary email linked to that account, but it says that I need to use the primary account to send a code. There's no mention of second account or anything of the sort.

Is there a way for someone to change the secondary email and put it as primary so I can start the password reset process? Or could I receive the code and everything to sort this mess to the secondary email so I could update my password and finally put the secondary email as primary?

(On another note, why put a secondary email if you can't even use it for situations like this? :) )

When I log in into firefox sync from the new device, I'm being asked to provide verification code from email.

I have not enabled 2FA, I do nto want this as it does not add any security to log in, and is just a bother, especially since emails form Mozilla are treated as phishing and/or spam.

How do I disable this "feature"?
