    Yes I got an alert from The Firefox monitor.
    Do not even remember when I last used it.

    IMO, email is the least important thing in this leak.
    Unless FF relay does more than email aliases (I don't use it), I don't see how it could've helped in this case.
    Since we're talking about email aliases, I'd also recommend SimpleLogin and AnonAddy.

    When if I use a ff relay email, I don't trust them with my real name, dob etc.

    Cool. I do a similar thing using a catch-all rule on my domain: every mail that's not an active account is delivered to my personal mailbox, then i sign up using [email protected]. From the panel i can blacklist mails when they get breached and when i receive spam i know who leaked

    It's really nice because i've also made mails like [email protected] and every mail ending with -servers gets sent to my "Servers" folder and marked as urgent if it contains certain words.

    I have used
    [email protected]

    Or

    [email protected]

    I like your approach though! Minimal number of alternate universe Will try it out during next round of PW resets/ culling of inactive Accounts
