Hi, as a user of Firefox from day1 I have hit my first problem so not bad going. Right, I have a win10 desktop(DT1) and 2 laptops (LP1 AND LP2). All win10 fully patched up &Firefox 84.02. This morning I noticed my network share from LP1 to DT1 wasnt working and found LP1 powered down. Powered it up & it looked to be completing a patch (KB4598242) so let it finish successfully and logged in. It wouldnt take the 2 master pw prompts although definitely typing them correctly. Poked around the forum that talks of key4.db, key3.db and logins.json. Only had key4db but had a loginsbackup.json. deleted logins.jason and renamed loginsbackup. reloaded. Same, so am stuck. Did notice as LP1 loaded after powering on that a Firefox update occurred. Could one have messed the other? Anyway these things seldom happen on their own so what went on yesterday. On LP2 I noticed that on each reboot I got 2 identical FFox windows. I tried refresh, uninstalling ffox & mainteneance service, same. So I searched for the word firefox and deleted everything I could find and reinstalled FFox. Same, so switched off & gave up. Perhaps I have sync between my devices, not sure. However I have never at any stage changed my master passwords which is the same on all 3 pc's. Any ideas? Shame to lose over 120 passwords if I have to somehow start over again by uninstalling FFox and reinstalling..that'll take ages. And of course the password prompt is coming up all the time whilst typing this. Help please

On one of my computers when I open firefox the master login requiring me to type my master password has disappeared. But when i go to any of my sites the passwords are in use as if I had. This means anyone with access to this computer can access any of my secured sites. How do I fix this.

Thanks

I forgot my master password on browser on old computuer. I have tried what I think is the correct one multiple times, and want to keep trying options so I can access my passwords from the old computer. Is there a lock-out feature for this or can I continue to try?

Please can someone tell me why is there such a long delay between opening firefox and the master password prompt?

Also if anyone knows if there is some way to either speed up the master password prompt so that it opens instantly on opening firefox or prevent it from opening until a password box is present on the webpage.

The delay in the master password prompt is up to 20 seconds and is so annoying, it just gets in the way when you are trying to work.

Thanks in advance for any assistance that can be provided.

Updated to Windows 10. Suddenly, in Firefox, master password popup appears every time a login is needed. Pop-up can be removed by clicking cross without entering password. However, log-in passwords are still remembered, and still work, without entering master.

Checked security setting, and yes, master password is now set. It wasn't set before. So it's set, but presumably without a password. Can it be unset without losing all previous remembered passwords?

Problem:
Cannot access passwords protected by master password.

Normal mode symptoms:
- No master password is ever asked
-- Trying to set one is futile (see screenshot)
- Certificate is at status "Ready" instead of "Logged In" or "not Logged In" (see screenshot)
- No fields are filled with usernames and passwords when needed.
-- No prompt for it is shown either

Background:
I transitioned from windows to linux
I made a full copy of all my profile when transitioning.
I controlled firefox's version to make sure I would transition using the same version number.
I have backups.
Nothing appears in the browser's console when I start or when I try to change master password.
If I try to view the passwords I have, however... ~120 messages appear telling it cannot decrypt (see screenshot)

Tried:
1-Safe-mode:
-- The master password system works as it is supposed to. I get a master password prompt at browser's first password use.
2- Deleting prefs.js
-- Still not working
3- Disabling all extensions manually
-- Still not working
4- Deleting storage directory
-- Still not working

-Trying 2 + 3, 3 + 4, 2 + 3 + 4 or 2 + 4....
-- Still not working.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance
