Hi,

Bought a new M1 Mac. Was very happy when an M1 version of Firefox got released today only to find my account locked out trying to sign-in. I received the infamous message: "The confirmation email we sent to xxx@gmail.com was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data"

That is not true. I am receiving emails just fine and I never lost access to my email account.

Help please!

Firefox Account verification problem

Dear Volunteer,

First of all, I have to thank you to build the community in your freetime. I've changed my computer. I have 2 firefox accounts, the first for private browsing, the second one for work browsing, and I use them via different Firefox profiles. The configuration of the private account (adam**********y@gmail.com) was succesful. But the configuration of the work account (s****i@orfk.police.hu) was not. I've used this accounts since 2013, and I'd reconfigured them so many times, and there wasn't any problem until now. The actually problem is the unreceived verigfication email. I've tried the actions below: - checking email working -> Perfectly works. - checking spam folder -> There is no any mail in the spam folder. - adding accounts@firefox.com to contact list -> Done. I did not get the verification emails. The administrators probably changed the security settings. I cannot log in, I cannot sync. I tried to send you this letter from my work e-mail, but I did not find any support address, just this option. How can I resolve this problem? Thans for your help.

Kind regards,

Adam Sterbinszky

Accessing Firefox account with secondary email address

Hi Everyone,

I cannot access my Firefox account created with 1 of 2 email addresses I use, I'll call this emailA, and do not have Firefox in an Authenticator app nor can I find the recovery code. The account did have a secondary email address listed. I'll call this emailB. EmailB also gets all alerts when there are changes to the EmailA firefox account such as new system logins and password changes.

Given that emailb gets notifications regarding the account is there a way for me to gain access to the account with emailA as the primary address using emailB?

Failing that, is there support who I can contact to have the account under emailA deleted?

Regards,

Chris
