Sounds a bit like a problem I had, signed up to flick on a whim, then forgot about it. On going back, I found I could not sign in. Went through the same rigmarole you are going through, ARGH! After several several more attempts, gave up again, in meantime I had read an article in Computer active about some advantages in using different browsers. I am on Firefox, and I had loaded Chrome, so signed into Flickr with Chrome, went straight in with the original password.
Still can't sign in to Flickr with Firefox, just get the wheel of eternity. Still going through a load of problems with Win. 10 May update so not too worried sorting out the differences between Firefox and Chrome and as I can't find the article in Computer Active I am not too sure what the advantages of using several different browsers are.   :-\

Just for technical interest I had a look at the flickr forum, it seems many users have had problems with accounts since they migrated to a new login system. There was talk of Yahoo being involved, oh god...

Might it be this problem?. The reply gives a support URL.

Just signed to Flickr in with Chrome, no problems.

Havn't bothered with Firefox, though it is my browser of preference.

This problem is starting to annoy me!. (in the sense that I can't help, I mean). I don't use Flickr myself, but you could try posting on this thread and give them some earache, the public visibility of it might help.

Did they give you a direct link to a page to reset the password?. Otherwise I was wondering how you reset it without being logged in.
