Astonishingly, Firefox Accounts, and everything behind them, do not require any password for sign-in/log-in. That is, I created a PW and logged in once.

However, if I type my name in the search bar in my Firefox browser immediately on the top an non-existent listing for me from mylife .com appears with my name, age and location prominently displayed for all to see. Please remove this. There is no page. I want my identity protected and my privacy restored.

I am very upset with Firefox when C Google was able to do this easily with information I provided on a dedicated page.
