I am using master password and had cookies deleted whenever I close my browser. Problem is, sometimes, I want to use the browser without using the saved logins. (e.g. someone else is using my PC to browse for a while or I just wanted to search for something with DuckDuckGo). But the browser keep on prompting user for master password.

1. How can i disable the master password auto prompt?

2. Is there any button to toggle the usage of saved logins? e.g. By default, it won't use my saved logins unless I click a button. If I am using master password, upon clicking the button, it will prompt me for my master password. Then, it will use my saved logins for any sites that i had saved my logins information.

Thank you.

You can toggle the Password Manager off via the Options/Preferences.

  • Options/Preferences -> Security: Logins: [] "Remember logins for sites"

You can consider to open about:preferences in a pinned tab for easy access if you need to toggle this regularly.
