How make Firefox ask master password when a site with saved password is opened (same as Firefox for Android) and not on every startup? (maybe in about:config)

Posted

Instead of showing a password dialog on every startup, I want to change the behavior to more like Firefox for Android where the password is asked only when a site with a password that has been saved in Firefox is opened (and only for the first site, it is remembered for all later instanced as long as Firefox is not closed).

Set the Password Manager to not ask for the master unless it a password is needed.

I don't see any such settings: http://ibin.co/2MacSy84ryIj

That's why I thought there might be one in about:config

Are you using Sync?

The Sync version used in Firefox 34 and later uses the password manager to store the name (e-mail) and password to be used to connect to the Sync server.
