I can't change or view my passwords because Firefox Lockwise asks for my windows password, which I don't have.

I am using nightly and now when I try to see my passwords it asks for my windows user password, which I don't have one. So I try to leave it blank but it doesn't work. I like the commodity of not using a password for my windows user account. Is there a way to go around it or just migrate to another password manager?

Do you still have this issue as this should have been fixed ?

Lockwise would ask for the Firefox master password and not for a Windows password.

Any specific reason you use a Nightly build and not the current release ?

The Nightly builds are meant for (experienced) testers and updates twice each day.

I like testing new features early and nightly has proven stable enough for daily use.
