Password Prompt at startup.

Posted

Even after update to FF 67 still get password prompt at startup. Reviewed multiple articles. Do not use sync. Use WebRoot. Please advise.

Chosen solution

A possible cause of the MP prompt at startup can be the hotfix extension to add the new intermediate certificate to the Firefox Certificate Manager. If you have this extension listed on the about:studies page then try to remove it when possible.

If you run Firefox 66.0.5 or later then you no longer need an extension or other workarounds to install the new certificate. You can also check the about:addons page for a (hot)fix extension and remove this extension when present.

Hi,

I assume you're talking about master password here. Here's what you can do to get rid of it:

1. Go to about:preferences 2. Choose Privacy & Security > Logins and Passwords 3. Uncheck the Use a master password checkbox

Please be mindful that removing master password means that you risk your saved logins exposed without protection.

More about that here http://mzl.la/1BAQynU
