I recently got 2 emails from Firefox, that stated my person information was hacked via Firefox, and sold.

Are these emails legitimate? If so, what have you done about this, and what can I do about this?

I'm aware of the LinkedIn hack...and changed my password for same, some time ago. I don't use the other sites that are mentioned in the emails.

I don't subscribe to and am unaware what/who, 'Have I Been Pwned', is...which makes me think both emails are suspect.

Firefox did not send you any emails since it is a web browser and not a company or such as that would be Mozilla.

Mozilla takes Privacy seriously as they would not sell any personal details. https://www.mozilla.org/privacy/ https://www.mozilla.org/privacy/principles/
