There was probably already a problem with the passwords if you needed to login to Sync. Sync stores the credentials to login automatically in the Password Manager and if there are problems with the logins.json file that stores the logins then Sync isn't able to login automatically.

Did you already try to reboot the computer in case the file is locked?

You can check the Firefox profile folder to see if there is data in logins.json or if there is a logins.json.corrupt file.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.
