Hi. I know my firefox account email: [email]@gmail.com and firefox account password: won't type it here, but i know it and have entered it successfully.

After i sign in, with the correct email and password, it states i need to access the verification code and enter it to use my firefox account. the problem is that i just reinstalled windows and the gmail password was autogenerated and stored within my firefox account. so in order for me to access my gmail to retrieve the verification code i need to access the passwords stored on my firefox account.

I have a number of autogenerated passwords related to my college assessments that are time sensitive. I need help with this urgently!

Thank you, Phillip Shields

AFAIK firefox account doesn't store gmail password or logins. So are you using your gmail as your login? Beyond using gmail as your login ID if that's not the Primary login then there no way to access your firefox account. So is this another account you created to post on firefox forum? Gmail account has no relations to firefox account as it's not a email account and I know I tried it only PM to other firefox users only.

perhaps i havent explained clearly.

i have a firefox sync account that uses the above mentioned gmail as the firefox sync account email. i know the password and entered it to login into my firefox sync account.

my firefox sync account then asks for a verification code that has been sent to my gmail account, because that gmail address is the primary address for my firefox sync account.

i cant access that gmail account to retrieve the verification code because my gmail password is stored within the firefox sync account i am trying to log into.

firefox sync account and password = known and entered correctly gmail account password = unknown and stored in firefox sync account

i am only using this firefox account because i needed it to post my question on here.

contacting anyone for help about this issue is next to impossible other than this forum.
