When I tried to confirm my e-mail address by clicking on the link in the e-mail after submitting a question on at this very help site, I got the following message:

Firefox Help Welcome, sdsutherland1. Dashboard | Sign Out Something is wrong

We could not activate your account. Please make sure that you have clicked the correct link in your email or typed in the correct address.

I was able to log in to this site but what do I do now?

I have copied and pasted the e-mail body here:

Please confirm your Firefox Help question

Hi sdsutherland1,

Before your Firefox Help question (Firefox is not inserting my passwords after I go to Tools/Options/Security and check "Remember Passwords for Sites".) can be seen by our support community, you need to confirm the account you just created by clicking on the link below:

If you did not ask a question or changed your mind, simply delete or ignore this email; you will not receive any more email from us.

Thanks again for asking the question -- we're sorry you're having trouble with Firefox, but our community of volunteers is looking forward to helping you get it resolved as quickly as possible.

As you may know, Firefox Support (like all of Mozilla) is community powered -- help is provided by users like you! Want to take part? Browse other users' questions at -- you might just make someone's day!
