Firefox on my Android was updated automatically to 79.0.5 Before the update I had a master password I understood. Now I cannot find either a master password or a primary password

The instructions in the migration guidance referred to removing to master password and setting a primary password Removing master password refers to selecting privacy settings - no longer available Setting a primary password refer to selecting logins and passwords then selecting something that does not exist - I only see three menu options "ask to save", "synchronise" and "saved..". Selecting saved requires the device password not a primary password. Once entered I am shown a blank page reading "the logins you save and synchronise will show here" - but its blank. I had many passwords protected by the master password and many passwords synchrnoised with my firefox account.

Hi

The primary password is not a feature of the new Firefox for Android, with the passwords stored in Firefox for Android protected by your device unlock method.
