I've tried a dozen times to register. First I had to find an unused ID. Then my e-mail address was rejected as being in use by another user! I wonder how that could be?

Just to be sure, you did register at http://forums.mozillazine.org/profile.php?mode=register for a forums account and not the http://www.mozillazine.org/members/ which is for www.mozillazine.org ?

Did you then also check you email for the activation link?

Yes, it was the Forum where I tried to register. No e-mails have arrived.

What is the account name or email address you are using for the account as I could get the account activated.

The e-mail address is <Email address removed so as to prevent spam>

The reason the email address was said to be used by another user is because an account was already registered with the same email address and has one post. The account is djn so perhaps you registered and then later forgot.


Sorry I could not get on for a few hours due to headache I had with getting a new second Sata hard drive working/booting with Linux and copying/moving files to it as it is a storage drive.

Thanks for the help, anyway.
