Why Firefox ask master password while opening a pdf in the browser window?
The question in the title. This annoying thing exists on Mac & Windows too.

I don't have a solution, but have seen this problem.
This could happen in Firefox 75 if:
- you have not yet entered your Master Password in this session
- you have a login saved for the site where you're viewing the PDF
However, I wasn't able to generate the same problem in a "clean" profile so some other setting (besides having a Master Password) could be coming into play.
This was fast! Sorry, I didn't find the existing question.
Looks like, no solution at this time, untick "Autofill logins and passwords" have no effect.
Does it make a difference if you set this pref to false on the about:config page?
- signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup = false
No, didn't help.
According the other topic, Firefox is asking master password if the pdf is under a domain, where you have saved login credentials and you have not yet entered your Master Password in this session. As jscher2000 wrote.
