I have tried logging into the Firefox add-ons website several times over the past few days and can not login at all.
I follow the usual procedure of clicking the “Register or Login” at the top right corner of the webpage.
I am sent to this webpage as normal:
https://accounts.firefox.com/oauth/sign … ion=signin
My email address used for logging is entered correctly and I always double check to ensure no errors are made.
I then get this next webpage which advises me “Enable two-step authentication” to continue to “Firefox add-ons”
I am then asked to select and use a two-step authentication app to login.
The problem is I have NEVER EVER set up two-step authentication for my Firefox account as I don’t wish to use it.
The Firefox add-ons website insists upon me using two-step authentication.
This is an absurd situation as Firefox allows me login to my Firefox Account without two-step authentication, when I am logged in the Security Settings very clearly shows that two-step authentication is NOT ENABLED and I know that I have NEVER enabled that two-step uthentication.
Have Firefox made it mandatory to use two-step authentication for logging to the Firefox add-ons website?
If this is the case why are we given the option to NOT USE IT for logging into our Firefox Account, mandating its use to access Firefox Accounts would be more sensible because Firefox Accounts have more sensitive Profile information.
Could somebody advise what is going on.
I have a Firefox Account Recovery Code and two email addresses on my account both are fully verified.
