Not prompted for master password

For some unknown reason, Firefox does not prompt me for the master password. This started happening after I opened quite a lot of tabs few weeks back. The prompt used to pop up on Firefox start up. But now it doesn't. I would have to do something to manually pop up the prompt. By something I mean, trying to save a password on a site, go to login page of a site, click on view logins etc. I'm not sure why this odd behavior is been shown. Any clues on how I could debug the issue?

One reason Firefox might prompt for a master password shortly after startup is to connect to your Firefox Account to Sync. Has anything changed in your Sync setup?

Nope. Nothing. I haven't enabled sync. As mentioned this all started after I had opened a bunch of tabs while working on a project. Not sure why this is happening. Any method which I could use to debug the issue?
