I'd like to permanently delete an account that was set up on a former employers email address (email which I can no longer access). Unfortunately I have no secondary email address recorded in the account and all the options on my account page require that I authorise any changes from the email account which I can no longer access.

Is it possible to delete the account?

How can I change my primary email address? I'm not computer smart to find your secret language to do that. Please change my primary email address to: [email edited from public] @gmail.com Cable one has pulled the plug and disconnected my previous [email edited from public] @cableone.net address. No one can send any emails to that address anymore as nothing is there.

I hope you can please help me. Jan Kautz

Dear Sir,

I have my firefox username and password. However, whenever I try to sign in nowadays, I am asked to enter a verification code that is sent to my email address within five minutes. The email does arrive, but never withing 5 minutes. I have tried it many times on different devices. It may be my email issue. However, I cannot change the email account unless I cannot log it. Since I cannot receive the verification code within 5 minutes, I am unable to change any of my personal details.

Please advise.

Yours sincerely, Tan Ngiap Heng

P.S. It was very difficult gettting to this support page. I was asked to log in and verify before continuing for some of the support pages. But like I mentioned, I am unable to receive the verification code within 5 minutes. So I am thankful for this page.

However, when I enter a secondary email, (AlexR@currently.com) a red popup message says: account already exists.

How can I eliminate msrigg@pacbell.net? How can I replace it with AlexR@currently.com?

Hi, Happy New Year!

Finally I took a deep breath and hoping for no major surprises and bugs, I finally updated Firefox to the latest version.

I have a few questions:

1. As advised, every month I backed up info in the profile, following https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles Is there an up-to-date version of these instructions as the prior ones no longer work (menus were changed, Troubleshooting works differently, etc.).

2. Does the "Allow for session" option for cookies work and if so, what does it do?

3. Is there a way to change the way the TABs look now (washed out, white, very hard to see and differentiate, hard to see which one is the one I am looking at). I am wondering what is the perceived benefit of this change. In the old version I had, the tabs very clearly delineated and easy to see.

4. Where can I find a listing of the enhancements and major changes of the versions released since mid year 2021, from an end user perspective?

Thanks.
