"Public Fox Authentication: Enter your password to unlock."

Posted

When I try to go to the Options window or the Add-ons window from the menu, it says "Public Fox Authentication: Enter your password to unlock." Which password is it asking for or how can I find out what my password is? When I click the OK button, no matter what I type as the password, it opens the window but closes it instantly.
