Hi,
I am also being told that I am unable to login as username is not recognised. So I try to register and it says my email address is already in use.
I am in a dilemma as I cannot log in as I cannot remember my username and I cannot reset my password as I do not remeber my user name.
What do i do to rectify this please

One approach would be to register with another user name.

Yes but it keeps telling me that my email address is already in use.

If you can't tell it you forgot your user name, then register with everything new, including email address.

Ignore the suggestion to register a completely new account unless you are desperate.


If the email is said to be in use then that means you registered an account on forums.mozillazine.org with the exact email address at some point and one cannot use the same email for multiple accounts.

If you give some indication what the email address is then a Mod can look to see what account is using that email address and tell you what the username is. say " emailname @ domain " should be enough as posting the full email may get picked up by spambots.

The username using that email address is Steve Bishop

It has three posts in this thread from 2012. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2462687
