What did you do? ================ 1. My MDN account was registered directly on MDN before MDN switched to Persona. 2. Now I want to change my email address of MDN account, because my old email service provider, Yahoo China Mail is closing. 3. On the profile editing page https://developer.mozilla.org/it/profiles/<MY_USER_NAME>/edit , I clicked "Modifica" right beside my email. 4. It said that I must change email with Persona:"To change your MDN email, simply sign in below with the new email address". 5. So I click the "sign in" button and signed in with my new email using persona. What happened? ============== It didn't work, showing a "Permission Denied" warning page. What should have happened? ========================== It should have successfully changed my email address, without showing any warning. Is there anything else we should know? ====================================== I've tried several times, bind my old email and new email together, or unbind them in Persona, then tried to modify my MDN account email. But never worked out.

The same error happens while network.http.sendRefererHeader is 2. So there must be another issue additional to the missing referrer detected in bug 789016 comment 7.

We need to either fix this (because of how often it comes up) or at least add a link to a custom bug form that asks people for their username and email address so that the bugs they file are actually useful. Almost never do people include that information, which means we can't help them.
Why is the option provided at all if it doesn't work?
Yes, change mail doesn't work, with network.http.sendRefererHeader=2 or not.
