Can't log into my support account, can't receive reset e-mails

I had to make a new support.mozilla.org account because I can't get into my old one. I'm not sure if I'm remembering my username right, and I don't remember my password (and it seems it wasn't saved in my saved logins). I've tried sending reset e-mails to all the e-mail addresses I might have used for the account, multiple times, but none of them have received anything. I've checked the spam folders, and I don't have issues receiving other types of Firefox e-mails.

It works .....

Hello SavannahJ,

You say that you can't login to your "support account" - well, obviously you can, otherwise you wouldn't have been able to post this question .....

You posted another question here :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1236100

However, could it be that you are talking about a Sync account  ?

Nice .....

Before I posted my answer (as nobody else had and I wanted to help) I read and re-read your post, believe me.

You start you post with :

" I had to make a new support.mozilla.org account because I can't get into my old one"

This is the support.mozilla.org page and I gave you a link to your previous thread.

As this is not about a Sync account, then I can only hope that somebody else will be able to help you .....

Let's try this again:

"I had to make a new support.mozilla.org account because I can't get into my old one"

Keep reading that until you get it.

Unless you used a different username / display name for your old account : on the support forum this account that you are using right now, will be the only active account. If you used an account with a different username / display name, it may have been deactivated.

So my question to you : did you use a different username / display name for that old account  ?

SavannahJ said

Yes, I did.

Do you remember which username / displayname you used  ?

And how long ago it was that you were using that account  ?

more options

As I mentioned, I'm not sure if I'm remembering my username right. And I don't remember how long it's been since I used it. However, I managed to find an old comment from that account, and it looks like it no longer exists, since my username shows as "user243512", and clicking on that leads to a "Page Not Found".

That means that your old account has been deactivated.

Unless you had some "unfinished business" on that account (problems that haven't been solved) - just leave it in the past.

You have a new account now, so if you have any questions : ask away SavannahJ ......
