How to stop lockwise from asking for machine pin/password?

Anytime I go to use lock wise (show, update, change) information it asks me for the windows machine pin. This is annoying as hell, what configuration option do I have to toggle off to stop this. I tried checking preferences however, some dev forgot to make an option to toggle this security feature on/off.

You can't. When you do not have a master password set then Firefox will ask for the Windows pin/password and because this is a security feature, you can't bypass this via a pref. The only way would be to set a master password in Firefox.

So more of a case of "I know best!" rather then just general of I forgot to do X before Z. Not sure if I am impressed or just disappointed. I think I will just go back to using extensions. Anyways thanks for answering my question.
