Hi,

I created a Mozilla account in 2013 (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/user/steebchen), but I was only 15 and don't remember its password (nowadays I manage all my passwords appropriately). 4 years later, I now want to publish an extension but realized that I could not choose the username "steebchen", since it's already taken. I can proof that this username is mine (my website is https://luca-steeb.com) and literally every account which has the username "steebchen" is mine (Github, Stackoverflow, Twitter, Facebook and a gazillion of other websites), I can also explain the meaning of the nickname "steebchen" with my last name "steeb" on my identity card. I really want to keep my username and somehow delete or recover my old Mozilla account. Is there a way to recover it?

Kind Regards

Luca Steeb
