I've setup master password and it's asked to enter at the start up screen. Other users can view my bookmarks by canceling the password prompt. I want others to prevent seeing my bookmarks if they don't know the master password

Chosen solution

The Master Password isn't meant to be used that way. The master password is only meant to encrypt the names and passwords that are stored in the Password Manager with an extra level of encryption. The MP didn't block access to Firefox, so if you would get a MP prompt when starting Firefox then you can cancel the prompt and use Firefox normally. You only can't access the passwords (you will get another prompt to supply the MP when needed).
