The email I received with this says it was answered by a robot. I cannot fathom that this company is doing that, if that is indeed accurate. people deserve better than that.

I think that living breathing human beings can provide great insight into what is what, by their own experiences, and can be helpful. I uploaded a screenshot, I would really like to know how someone could do that. I am not a thief, so it is utterly incomprehensible to me how to do that.

Please someone must have had this experience. STILL -- NO HELP IN HOW TO CHANGE THE PASSWORD. I HAVE A MOZILLA PASSWORD. GLAD TO CHANGE IT TO WHATEVER WORKS BUT I CLICK THE ICON AND ONLY SEE "YOU HAVE EMAIL" where do epople change theri passwords? Good lord osomeone must know that becuase i asked the question in the box and that is ALL they provided -- and it doesn't work.

Are you using the sync option? That is what your screenshot is showing.

Like posted above, what is in the screenshot are the credentials that are you to login to the Firefox Account that is used for Sync.


Firefox uses the Password Manager to store the credentials of the Firefox Sync account (chrome://FirefoxAccounts) to make it possible to connect to Sync each time you start Firefox without the need to enter email and password.

I noticed you created another thread about how to disconnect from Sync.

Hello GINAHERE,

In addition to what's been posted by FredMcD and cor-el, and to (hopefully) set your mind completely at ease :

Firefox uses the "chrome://" protocol to access its internal files and also uses chrome in other cases, like e.g. : userChrome.css - it is in no way related to Google's browser Chrome. Firefox used the word "chrome" long before Google named its browser "Chrome".....

That is why I was trying to unsync. I do not want to do that. Thus, I finally saw you have to log in, then you can access the sync settings and thus UNSYNCED. If this is a default setting, it should not be.

thanks
