    When I thought I was clearing the cache, I was clearing the history, anyway, I cleared all the cache and it got rid of my passwords so I went to firefox logins and passwords and tried to use them to get back into my sites.......but they wont accept the passwords? and I have to sign in here all the time now even though I don't sign out.
    Am making a bad scenario for me even worse now.......

    Julie, can't I use my usual beginning of email addy with gmail?........sorry if this sounds soft but am very poor with the computer.

    Give me a wedding party and I will make the gown, bridesmaids, mothers outfits in a few days.....but the computer

      I wish I lived nearer I'd come round and have a look at the computer for you.

      I guess if the beginning of your email is something like Tillymint@ whatever then I can't see why if you create a new one you can't use Tillymint@gmail.com or Tillymint@hotmail.co.uk


      when you come to this site do you use a bookmark? or do you type it in every time to your browser?

      if you use a bookmark, delete it and then type in www.familytreeforum. com into your browser, then put in username/password and tell it to 'remember you' I never log out either, but I have a 'pinned' tabs on my browser that are always there, so I just click on them to goto whichever site I want to visit, be it Ancestry/Facebook/Twitter I just click on a tab.

        are you still using firefox? and if it is autofilling your emails etc you can turn that off, it may be that auto fill is putting in a wrong password for your email

          You cannot change recovery details on an account unless you can access it, this is done for security reasons.

          Tilly Mint unfortunately I think you need to draw a line under this and consider the yahoo email account as lost.
          The best possible advice I can give is to setup two email accounts, ie: one with gmail.com and the other with outlook.com and set each as the other's recovery account.
          I would also advise you consider using a password manager such as Keepass or LastPass to manage your logins and any other secure info you may have.

          If after 90 days you are then able to access your yahoo account, I would consider this as a bonus, and then set the recovery account details correctly.

                  Yes Val it is and very good it is too, I no longer have to worry about passwords as LP can generate them for me and they are just letters and numbers so I don't have to remember them.

                    Thanks, Tim. I tried to download gmail but I keep getting this............

                    ""502. That’s an error.

                    The server encountered a temporary error and could not complete your request.

                    Please try again in 30 seconds. That’s all we know.""

                    What a pain.......I'll keep trying.

                    Thanks again

                      There is nothing to download for Gmail it is in the 'cloud'. Not sure where you are, maybe just setting up an address?

                        I was trying to get it from here...

                        https://www.google.com/intl/en-GB/gmail/about/

                        Cloud.......how do I access that?

                        Please, bare with me, my daughter set this computer up for me and I've never had a bit of trouble until my email played up. All I do is my genealogy and emails.

                          yes link is right - you just create an account, shouldn't be anything to download. not sure why you are getting error.
