I'm trying to register and getting a message saying I answered a question wrong. The only thing that's blank is "How many letters in Mozilla?" Is 7 an incorrect response? How could I possibly be getting that wrong? I know how to count.

Is there something else wrong with the info I'm entering? I've never seen this forum before, so it can't be that I'm blocked for bad behavior. My e-mail address is valid, and I'm quite certain I entered the same password twice. Also, that password doesn't have any special characters. It's a reasonably complex and long password. What else could be wrong?

Of course, this message won't get seen by anybody if it really is a problem with counting to 7, since the same question is here above, in which case this is of no help whatsoever and I'll never be able to get an answer.

P.S. Just for the heck of it, I tried entering 6 instead of 7, and now I'm able to see a message preview without errors. IOW, that appears to have solved the problem. But count with me, please: M-O-Z-I-L-L-A. Looks like 7 to me. Maybe you mean to ask "How many DIFFERENT letters are in Mozilla". If that's the case, you need to clarify this, and thanks for wasting my last half hour.

Yeah, we're aware of the issue and it does seem to be a matter of a poorly worded question. Unfortunately, the forum moderators don't have access to change the text involved.

I tried registering for the past 4 days and could not do it. The last time, I read the question carefully and tried putting "6" since the letter L is repeated. However, that question is poorly worded.

Try 6 instead of 7. The question is poorly worded and should probably read "how many unique letters" are there in Mozilla.
