HELP

If you want to keep using Lockwise with unimpeded access to the clear text of passwords, there is a way to temporarily turn off the new requirement of Firefox 76 to enter your Windows 10 password (I say temporarily because this likely will be removed in a future release):

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste os-auth and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the signon.management.page.os-auth.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

More info on about:config: Configuration Editor for Firefox.

Hi cary.rowton, Lockwise should not ask for a Master Password unless you set one yourself. However, Firefox 76 has a new feature to ask for your OS password on Windows or MacOS if you want to view the text of a password or copy it. More info in this article: Lockwise asks for authentication (password, voice, face or fingerprint) when accessing passwords. Is that what you're seeing?
