Hi,

I would love to see some sort of login pop-up in order to see the stored passwords on my Firefox browser on windows. Whether it being the windows login or the master password on Firefox doesn't really matter but, what's annoying with the master password that I don't want is that it asks for my master password every time I'm trying to login to a website which becomes annoying real quick.

On android when trying to access the stored passwords a window shows up where you have to unlock with your android pattern/fingerprint/key pin to access the stored passwords. I would really like to have something like that in Firefox on Windows as well.

On Windows you can have that feature if you do not use the Primary/Master Password although this feature might be disabled.

You can check this pref on the about:config page.

  • signon.management.page.os-auth.enabled = true
