Firefox forces me to enable 2FA when signing in to addons.mozilla.org

Hi everyone,

Last Saturday, I was able to sign in to Firefox Add-Ons Firefox Add-Ons and submit a pre-release of an add-on I'm working on. But today, I'm being forced to enable 2FA to simply log in to the site. I don't want to enable 2FA, I just don't need it. Can someone explain me why is this happening ? Can I just log in and submit my add-on's update ?

I've tried to sign in two different MacBooks (M1 12.1 and Yosemite 10.10.5), using two different Firefox versions (99.0.1 and 78.15.0esr). Also, I haven't enabled 2FA in my personal account.

Thanks in advance.

Using 2FA is mandatory for signing in to the AMO website as an extension developer.

You can possibly use a Password Manager that supports TOTP or authenticator extension if you do not want to use an app on a mobile device.

That's just...awesome. Just for curiosity, how's that I was able to submit an extension without using 2FA?

I have no idea, maybe you were lucky and you do not need it for the first submission, but only for updating and other development related things.

Hi, I´m not a developer and have this problem too. I can´t sign in to addons.mozilla.org because I don´t want to enable 2FA.
