Hi,

I posted on the admin area once recently (but it rejects my admission since) re: accessing Mozillazine with my username, pw and email address I've used for many years here. An admin person posted a link to re-access this forum but when I click that link and try to log in I get an immediate error message appears -You have tried to log in the max allowed - so it won't allow me in even though I just tried once to log in with that link.

Is there a gmail or yahoo address for an admin person on this list I could please email re: using my old user name, pw and email?

I fear FF will not allow me in here again and I will not be able to reach any admin person to help.

I tried getting a new pw (Forgot my password), I tried registering with my old email but new user and pw and none of that worked.

Thank you.

eager to learn.

Every time I try to log in it doesn't recognize my username nor password nor will it let me Forgot my password. It's totally screwed up. Thanks.

I did a forced reactivation on that old account so you should receive an email to allow you to log in.

My apologies but every time I’m given a link to log in after it’s been cleared by admin I always get that error message – Max attempts attempted and I’m locked out – always on my first try.

Can you pls. Delete my longstanding username and password and then I’ll register as if all that info was never registered?

If not, what’s your plan to solve this?

Thanks.

We don't delete accounts on these forums. Why not continue to use the new user ID you've been posting with here?

That doesn't work now either.

Something is wrong with FF.

You're posting here so you are accessing this site. What is it that you think is not working?

I performed a "Forced Re-activation" on the 4th & Dan did one on the 10th.
There are 2 "Anonymous" activations on or just after both of those dates.

Don't understand why you cannot use your original "etl" UN.

So...Just use your new UN?

Do I remember correctly that you said that you use a LIBRARY computer?
Maybe that is causing the problem?
Dunno?

the new FF browser is the problem. I can't access this forum with that browser.

Can you pls share the link to FF 43?

I had no login problems with 43.

Strange that so many folks are using Firefox 74, including connecting with these forums under Win 10, without any difficulty whatsoever.
Your user agent string seems to suggest that you're using Safari but with Windows 10. Is that true?
Is this on a library computer or your personal system?
If you are authorized to do so, have you tried a new Firefox profile?

I'm using FF 73 on my laptop running W10, not a library PC.

I seem to recall something like this happened another time and there are certain steps in FF I need to take to "reset" FF.

If I Google Mozillazine and it brings up the home page for the forums and I click Sign In I get this weird page EVER time now which prompts me for a PW (not username) and then doesn't allow access.

When administrators have forced a re-set for me, I click to log in and type in my username and pw and get that message that I've maxed out the number of times to log in...even though I've only tried once.

This problem occurs both my my old username + pw and new username + pw.

Thanks for your help.
