My problem was I tipped my firfox account passwort, when it asked me for my windows password.

Many people are doing the same thing, so don't feel bad.

Problem solved, eh ?

Hello   Katharina,

I'm not 100% sure that this is what you are talking about, but would you please take
a look at this article :

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/lockwise-password-authentication-prompt

In case you want to disable this feature :

Type in the address bar   about:config   and press Enter.
(ignore the warning)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

signon.management.page.os-auth.enabled

Change its value to   false.

Then close and restart Firefox.

(this preference may be removed sometime in the near future )

I know where to find my saved passwords. My login to see them isn't working. And I have no idea why.

Do you mean that you can't view passwords when you click on the "eye symbol"  ?

If so :   would you please read the article I linked to ?

Or maybe I am totally misconstruing your problem .... (?)
