Account Login / Lost Password / Password Reset
I have just had to open a New Firefox Account in order to ask this #$%^&* Question. Firefox Browser indicates I am not signed in, although the browser shows all my bookmarks and has "saved passwords". My ORIGINAL Account used an email/Login that was "compramised". I want to go into that account and update the email/Login but the browser will not allow me to reset the password. How do I get help to fix this Problem. I do not want to lose all my Bookmarks and Saved Passwords.

Unfortunately if you can't access that email that was used to register for the Firefox account there nothing more that the MODs or anyone else on here can do to help with that. So until you resolve you email account lockup Firefox has no control of what your email support does to your email account access.
The next FAQ are what you need to read over if they will help backup your data.

You shouldn't rely on sync to backup your data.
