Delete Account functionality

Even though I previously deleted the Firefox account associated with my usual e-mail address, Firefox appears to remember this account. However, it does NOT remember the password associated with this account. If I want to reset the password, I am told via Firefox message that this entails possible loss of personal data, incl. bookmarks, which defeats the purpose of creating an account in the first place.

So I can neither re-create nor log in to this zombie account but have to use a different e-mail address in order to use Firefox account functionality.

Getting help in this situation without a working Firefox account is also next to impossible (without a Twitter account, at least), as I needed to get an account even to access the page from which I am writing this. Firefox browser feedback is also disabled, Firefox Facebook is paused.

If the above description is correct, then I guess the only help is a reworking of the Delete Account functionality.

NOTES:

  • This is not a case of forgotten password (I wrote it down on paper at the time) or wrongly-typed password (I copied and pasted the password string from Notepad when previous login attempts had been unsuccessful.)
  • The deletion of the previous account took place on 2019-01-08 and included confirmation "Account deleted successfully".
  • When I created a new account for a different e-mail address today, I was informed by Firefox that a Firefox account had previously been created from the same machine for a different e-mail address. So, not only does Firefox remember the e-mail address of an allegedly successfully deleted account but also the identity of the machine associated with that account.

How do I configure Firefox to connect to my proxy server using HTTPS, not HTTP?

How do I configure Firefox to connect to my proxy server using HTTPS, not HTTP?

If I enter "tls.example.com" as my HTTP proxy, and 443 as the port number, Firefox sends an unencrypted "CONNECT" header on port 443. Of course, this is wrong, because my proxy server only speaks HTTPS, not HTTP.

If I enter "https://tls.example.com/" as my HTTP proxy, and 443 as the port number, Firefox says "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." but in fact, Wireshark confirms that Firefox never even tries to connect to anything! It never sends a single SYN packet at all.

According to: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=378637 Firefox does support the behavior described. That link doesn't explain how to configure it, though.

Hello to FredMcD

Thank you very much for responding to my post and so quickly. I’ve not yet started Firefox in safe mode but have done the other things you mentioned. As I have dealt with lots of problems (solved now thanks to help from MS, Parallels, Apple) over the last month, I think I’ll wait a few days before moving ahead with this one.

Webcam not working on mozilla firefox

Hi all, I have this problem: my webcam (is an USB camera on a desktop with Windows 10 - Innoo Tech 1080HD - quite a low budget one) does not work on the first on Firefox (using Google meet or any webcam test site), but after I run a FPS test on (https://it.webcamtests.com/fps) it will star working. I already have given the necessary permission for using the camera (checked both on windows and mozilla options) to all sites. Here is the thing: when I start a call in Google meet it says "camera is starting" but nothing appear on the screen. The camera does not work also in all sites for testing the webcam, nothing appear in the screen. But here is the trick: if I run the FPS test on webcamtests.com all start working, but if I close firefox on the next time I will open it, the camera will not start working again. All the times I run the FPS test the camera starts working properly.

How could I solve seriously this problem? thanks Lorenzo
