Are you canceling the dialog or does this still happen if you enter the Primary Password once ?

Are you using Sync as this is a possible reason to ask for the Primary Password ?

Using Sync is a possible reason to ask for the Primary Password at startup. This is because the credentials to login to the Sync account are stored in the Password Manager and you need to enter the Primary Password to unlock the passwords.

Hi, do you mean any time you open a page where you have a saved login, Firefox prompts you to enter your primary password like this:

Is the problem that you have to keep entering the password over and over, or you do NOT want to use a saved login on the page and therefore you have to keep canceling the dialog over and over?

Note that you can disable the Password Manager (Lockwise) and login manually by opening Lockwise (about:logins) and enter the Primary Password.

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security: Logins and Passwords: [] "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites"

In this case you can use "Use Saved Login/Password" in the right-click context menu to fill the login credentials.

You should only have to enter the Primary Password once during a session if that is what you have to do unless you cancel the PP dialog.

Hi njm, what if you temporarily turn off Firefox's password manager. Do the prompts stop? Here's where you would do that:

(A) Open the Settings page

  • Windows: "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Settings (previously "Options")
  • Mac: "3-bar" menu button (or Firefox menu) > Preferences
  • Linux: "3-bar" menu button (or Edit menu) > Preferences
  • Any system: type or paste about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it

(B) Click Privacy & Security in the left column

(C) Scroll down to the "Logins and Passwords" section

(D) Uncheck the box for "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites"
