Okay, I have no idea why this problem is just now popping up but I’ve just noticed it today.
I’ve had the Personas add-on since Firefox was calling it Get Personas-- way before firefox sync accounts seemed to be around, so I had an email address and login for the Personas add-on and it differs from my Firefox Sync account.
I went to change my persona earlier and it prompted me to sign-in. Usually this isn’t a problem and I use my old Get-Personas information to sign in and see my list of favorite personas again. This time, it forced me to the Firefox Sync Log-on screen and would NOT take my old Get Personas information. It would say “Unknown account” whenever I tried to login. I tried to reset the password for that account thinking maybe I had changed it and forgotten (little chance), and I still got the “Unknown account” message.
So, I signed in with the Sync account to verify that my personas weren’t somehow moved to that account (they weren’t) and was prompted to create a username. I wrote down the one I used in Personas (Sinais) and it refused to let me use it because it was already taken. So, my Personas account still exists somewhere but for some reason I can no longer access it to actually reach my personas. I’m more than a little bit irritated at the moment.
Any idea what’s going on, and how to get personas to log in with the correct account that obviously exists but firefox has lost somewhere? I had a long list of favorite personas on that.
