Delete locked account

Kuphostiwe

I lost access to my two-factor authentication app and therefore could not get into my account. I have created a new account using a different email address but I would like to use the email address (which I still have access to) associated with that account. As long as the old account exists I cannot associate that email with my new account. I cannot find any way to contact Mozilla to ask them to delete the old account (and free up that email address). Will it just get deleted eventually if I don't log into it anymore? Is there someone I can contact to close that old account? Thanks

That is not possible. Note that there are recovery codes to access the Firefox Account and a recovery key to access your Sync data in cases like this.

^: that won't work if you have set 2FA and not not have access to the Authenticator app or recovery keys because you won't be able to access the Firefox Account Settings page.

The OP already did create a new account and wants to delete the older account.

I have created a new account using a different email address but I would like to use the email address (which I still have access to) associated with that account.
As long as the old account exists I cannot associate that email with my new account.

I know - hence I said   "indeed".....

Hi argent.wolfwing.

Did you ever get a resolution to this problem? I'm in the same boat and locked out of an account with no way to delete it and start again.
