How to change my email address
I need to change my email address as my provider is closing down. I have seen the suggestion that I make a secondary with my new address but this will nor work as I have the secondary address with the same provider.

You your current secondary email address also stops working then you need to make an email address with another provider your secondary email address.
You can add a secondary email address and confirm this address. Once it has been confirmed, you can make the secondary email address your primary email address.
My secondary email address is also attached to same provider as the main email address. A swap wont help.
The question is whether that email keeps working as if that is the case then you can make that email address the primary address and you can only do that as long as you have still access to this primary address. If both of them stop working then you need to get a new email address by another email service before you lose access to the primary email address or you will have to create a new account.
I have got myself another email address by another email service but I still don't see how I can add it as both my primary and secondary email places already have the old email addresses. Where would I add the new email?
When you are on https://accounts.firefox.com/settings, to the far right of Secondary email you should see a red garbage can icon to delete that address. Assuming that works, you should be able to add your newest email address as secondary and then make the switch.
