Can't view passwords

Trying to figure out what my password was to a website. Its saved under my logins in firefox.

I click on the icon to reveal the password, and it asks for my firefox password. I enter it, and it rejects it.

I know the password is correct. I can log in and out of my mozilla account using that password. I reset it to something else anyway just in case. It still works to log in and out, but still won't work to view my other passwords.

The master password check box is unchecked. I tried to check it to set a new master password but that pops up the same dialogue, asking for my password. I enter it, it rejects it.

Thanks!

That did it.

Why on earth do they have the firefox logo on there to ask for your OS password? lol

I had to go back and check it again to make sure I wasn't just imagining that
