How can i set firefox to not ask me every day to enter my master password but only when someone wants to see a password ?

Is this the same Windows account or the same Firefox account ?


If all use the same Firefox profile folder then all need to enter the primary password if they need to start Firefox. If they use the same profile and thus can have access to the same logins in Lockwise then you can consider to leave Firefox open and possibly use "Clear Recent History". If the other use their own profile then they will have their own primary password.

Are you possibly using Sync to sync the logins as that can be a reason to ask for the Primary/Master Password on startup ?

This is because the credentials to login to the Sync account are stored in the Password Manager and you need to unlock the passwords to be able to reconnect.

If you close Firefox on a computer (device) then you need to enter the primary password if you restart Firefox. If others use the same Windows user account and the same Firefox profile then there are no other options.
