I was just on the phone with Avast for over an hour. Their premium support dept. I ran the Avast Clean utility and there was still files on my computer. The same files. So they did a remote and I watched as they went in and removed software files and showed there was no files left. Did the reboot and I still couldn't get into my account. They saw that I could get into my account with another browser and said it was something with Firefox. I told them that I have only used Firefox on this computer and that Avast was installed after FF when I first set up. Before installing Avast I could get into my accounts. After uninstalling Avast FF was uninstalled and reinstalled. They said it was a registry issue and offered to let me subscribe as a prime member for $59.99 and their prime department could fix it.

When I go into This PC and put in Avast, I still show the above files.
It's burning me out.

Very doubtful that it is a registry issue as about the only thing that Firefox does to the registry is set itself as a the default browser, if you have allowed it to make that setting.

Are you referring to an account on these forums, or somewhere else?

It was this forum. The message I got at sign in "Your account has been manually deactivated and is only able to be reactivated by administrator." I couldn't figure out how to contact an admin since I couldn't get in so I registered again.

You should be able to login on the SallyW account now if you want to use it.

So did Mozilla do an update??
It's a miracle! I sat down to do bills and **poof** I can suddenly get into ALL of my accounts, including the 3 I was having issues with!
Humongous sigh of relief.
Thank all of you for your patience and suggestions. I really am grateful.
