making my secondary email address my primary email address

more options

I want to make my secondary email address for my firefox account my primary email address. I searched for help, and found that I am supposed to just select my secondary email address and click on "make primary". But when I sign in to "manage account", my only option for secondary email address is to "add". I already have done that, and it definitely won't let me do it again, but also it doesn't show up so there is no way to change it. Please help. I'm new to Firefox and generally like it, but this is very frustrating as I keep getting caught in a circle.

Do you (or do you not) still have access to your Primary email account?

If not, the feature to make your Secondary email address your Primary address isn't possible to accomplish. Both have to be available to you at the same time.
