I use persona for many (mozilla)sites and the marketplace. But when try to login to the marketplace on my new peak device with the latest OTA update it reports that my email is not register and ask me to enter a password as a new account.

When i do that (use the same password as my original account)i get redirected to my acount on marketplace with my original username and the i see the apps i have installed on my other devices.

in my email i got a activation email from persona.
Firefox OS on marketplace uses a different persona account service than the general persona account service, so you will have to create a new account. This will eventually be resolved, but it's being tracked as part of the work going on in the browser ID github repository - https://github.com/mozilla/browserid. Feel free to ping someone in #identity for more information on this.

"uses a different persona account service"

Ahhhh!!!!! Why don't you tell us in the UI? I thought everything is broken until I found this "RESOLVED INVALID" bug. 

What happens if I use the same email address for the two different persona services? Will these get merged?
