Locked out of Firefox sync, formal request to delete personal data best solution?

Hi, it's been a while since I used Firefox and I don't seem to have a way of getting back into Sync with my primary e-mail address since I can't find my backup code. Who do I contact to either get my account deleted so I can start again, or get an account reset option set to my e-mail address? Ultimately none of my devices are logged in, and I cannot find my backup code.

The impression I have so far is that you have to sign in with another e-mail account (which is what I have done now), but this is not the e-mail account I want to use.

If Mozilla are storing my name and contact details for the sign in, would the best route be a formal request for deletion of personal data?

Thanks

There is nothing wrong with my gmail account either - I checked gmail is not bouncing mail back sent to my address.

I tried to update my primary email, but it said it was already associated with my account -- even though it wasn't displayed. I added a secondary email and made that primary, hoping it would then allow me to add my main email and then swap them. But it still said the main one was already associated (even though it's not shown). I only have two email addresses. I don't want the secondary one to be the primary one. But I can't add it or edit them. Clues?

The Original email address I used to create my Firefox account is lost.

When I look in the support site the advice is to create a new Firefox Account under a valid email address and then I will be able to sync my data.

I created a new mail address, but if I try to create that new Firefox account with that I get the notification that the primary email address of the account is needed to sign in. But that account does not exist anymore. So I don't see the form I have to fill in to create my new account. Can you help me?

Hi, I have a problem with login in to my Firefox Sync Account, after clean installation of Windows 10. I have not recall to enable 2FA in Firefox Sync i have never used it to activate account on my PC or Android Phone. I'm using 2FA to my Google Account witch is the email for my Firefox Sync Account. But supposedlyi did.

I have tried to use keys generated by Google Authenticator (witch is only 2FA token I use, not counting Facebook App, witch I use only for FB) but no success. I tried to use this link https://accounts.firefox.com/signin and then use proper password. Then there is an information to check email for confirmation link. I get no email, noting in spam nothing nowhere. I did add the accounts@firefox.com email address to protect it from spam filters, but nothing in 4 days, waiting for a miracle. 

In an act of desperation i did change the password for the account. And i received email to confirm this chance witch a did. The email was send from accounts@firefox.com e-mail, and it arrived in my inbox immediately.

Why i do not get the confirmation email?

Hi. I'm really frustrated. I had to reset my Windows PC yesterday. I tried to reinstall FireFox but the "Firefox Installer.exe" and "Firefox Setup 84.0.1.exe" don't respect Windows standards installing into "C:\Program Files" but rather force the installation of FF into C:\Users\{user}\AppData\(Local, LocalLow, and Roaming)!! It was so frustrating and I acted out of haste and wrote a nasty feedback to Mozilla last night and I'm sorry about that :( I am just very frustrated why Mozilla is installing FF wherever it wants to!

Anyway, I think my email account is blocked now and when I tried to sign into my Sync acct, it says:

    [[ Sorry. We’ve locked your account.
    The confirmation email we sent to *****@ hotmail com was returned and we’ve locked your account 
    to protect your Firefox data.
    If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account.
    No longer own that email? Create a new account ]]

My email is not blocking anyone and I'm receiving emails from everyone as of this writing. I need to fetch my bookmarks and plugins.

Help please!

Thanks Ken

Hello,

Since 2 step authentication has been added to the Mozilla add-on accounts, we no longer have access to this account. We have the email address and password, but cant enter the code for the 2 step authentication as the code is sent to an email that no longer exists. We have another account that we would like to transfer an extension to from the old email account. Is there any way to access the old account or transfer the extension from the old account to the new one without having the access to emails sent to the email address of the old account?

This is important to us as the id of the extension used within the non-existent account is preventing us from loading another extension with the same id. This is to prevent us from having to rebuild our NMH software that must use the appropriate id for communication.

Any help would be appreciated.
