I've contacted Google support, they say my account is still open, it's been 2 months now that I've lost access to this account. I've followed all recovery steps to no avail. I was using the Firefox browser when this happened. The email that I've lost access to is the same one that I used to make my Firefox account, but I have no way to verify it's my account.
