I want to change my e-mail but don't want to delete an account. Is this possible?

Chosen solution

No "primary" or a"secondary". The users email address is used as the account name which can't be changed.

You'll need to create a new Firefox Account using the 'new' email address. It's up to you whether you delete the existing account or just stop using it.

Well that just isn't right! I don't use the same email I signed up with firefox years ago and I can't get that email back, because google doesn't let you restore an email once you delete it!

Now I am completely screwed on getting my passwords, bookmarks and every other sync file that I need!

Why didn't my email sync update when I updated my email with firefox?
