I am sick & tired of his rants & ignoring of any answers posted.
I'll leave it to another moderator.

This is not about just this one thread, but about loads of them in Support. - We really do need to be giving the SafeMode and additional new testing profile advice far earlier in just about all threads, without sounding like automatons while doing so or else they assume that it doesn't really apply to them.

Wiki account request

I'd like to request a wiki account with the username "LFaraone", to make edits to outdated or incorrect documentation as I encounter it.

For example, http://kb.mozillazine.org/Command_line_ ... derbird%29 refers to syntax not valid since Thunderbird 2.0.

(I'm also active on Wikipedia, see note confirming the validity of this statement.)

In another current thread this is being discussed. Seems the question wants the number of unique letters, i.e. 6 (double L only counted once). Very poorly worded question.

I figured it out - don't ask me how.
Feel free to delete the above message.

BTW, the answer to the "captcha", "How many letters in Mozilla?:" seems to be, '6'.
Don't ask me how that adds up ;-).

Username: (therube)
Subject: cannot sign in

i enter my pass with CAPS
which immediately reply's back with
"You exceeded the maximum allowed number of login attempts. In addition to your username and password you now also have to solve the CAPTCHA below."
(which isn't true, well, unless the max allowed number is 1, anyhow)

there is no (Google) captcha, but instead, a "how many letters in" question (just like this post is asking)
which, with my UN & correct PW & correct "how many" answer, is still not accepting my login
instead, once again, saying
"You exceeded the maximum allowed number of login attempts. In addition to your username and password you now also have to solve the CAPTCHA below."


(Also, "Mozilla?:", is rather arbitrary, as in is the ? supposed to be counted or not? So 7 or 8? In either case, neither seems to help.
Are "letters" only alpa-chars or is ? a "letter" too?)


thanks.
