I'm having a problem with an extension that recently updated so I tried to log in to AMO to make a comment. But it goes to a weird screen now called "Firefox Login" and when I type in my email address it tells me "Unknown Account". Which is silly because they keep sending me Add-On compatibility messages to that exact email address. Is anyone else having issues logging in or am I just totally locked out of my Developer account now?
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Did you click on 'create an account' and enter the same email @ password ?
I think one has to 're-register' and become part of the greater collective..

Well that worked. As ridiculous and not obvious and as afraid as I was that I would lose all of my old data, it worked. How hard would it have been to just have a note explaining what to do? Or is this "discoverability" in action? :roll:
