When I went to use Firefox and input my Master Password for the first time today it wouldn't accept it. It just asks and asks, over and over. I have restarted Firefox in safe mode and reset it as well. I am not ready to lose all my passwords. Please advise.

Dear volunteers,.. y'all do tremendously valuable work ... adding to the wisdom of the cloud/crowd. Many times I solved a problem by just looking for postings of others who had the similar problem, but now I had to become a member of this community to ask about this problem. The only thing I could find that sort of addressed (I think??) my problem was https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=499233 But I don't understand that tech-talk.

Anyways ... on July 6 the build in password manager stopped responding to my old and tested master password. The password manager just keeps asking for it... as if my password is wrong - but it is not. I have been using the same password for a few years and never changed it. Prior to this mysterious behaviour I did nothing special to my computer or to Firefox. I'm on Win7 with up to date virus and malware protection.

The thing that makes me think that it is not a question of the wrong password, is that after much fiddling in the section "settings and security" with it's options like resetting, changing, removing or showing passwords ... suddenly my old and trusted master password was accepted again (!) but only in the "change master password" field. So I did change my master password into exactly the same old master password that had worked for the last years. I than closed Firefox ... started it again ... went to a site for which it keeps my password .. entered my (old-new) master password ... and bingo it was again accepted. Joy :) The next day however password manager again refused to cooperate! And now 'it' does not fall any more for the procedure to change the master password. I do know about typo's, and I do sometimes use the copy/paste method from hidden plain text files. When password manager finally accepted my password again ... I did - to be extra certain - a keyboard input in the first field and a copy/paste input in the second field and that was accepted by the password manager. Any one ever heard of such a thing?

I downloaded Firefox a while ago then never used it. I uninstalled too. Then today I decided I wanted to use Firefox so I installed it again. Only I cant remember ever setting a user name or any password. It sometimes asks for a master password too which I have no idea what it could me. Whats my best course of action?

When I try to uncheck "Use Master Password" a pop-out asks for a current password, which I do not have. I've tried passwords that I may have used to set one (although I don't recall ever setting one), and none work. When I leave the "current password" field blank, the only choice about proceeding is to cancel. So, how do I uncheck the "Use Master Password" and stop the pop-down requests for it? Thanks for any help you can provide. I am on a MAC if that helps, so the solution using Tools and options didn't work.

Why does Firefox ask for my master password on my laptop but not on my desktop?

I use a master password for my Firefox account. My desktop Firefox account only required me to enter my master password once and I have never, in the year or more since, had to enter it again. However on my laptop, I am constantly nagged to enter the master password each and ever time I open Firefox. And if I don't enter it and press cancel, it will eventually nag me a few seconds to a a few minutes later.

I've searched support and none of the suggestions have resolved the issue. I don't use AVG or Eset Internet Security. I followed the steps in the guide anyway but did not resolve the issue.

Thank you for your consideration.

My laptop: Microsoft Surface 6 i7-8650U, 8Gb RAM Windows 10 Home 64-bit version 1903 Firefox version 73.0.1

I never setup a master password, but it is turned on and I can't turn it off.

In "Settings" the "Use Master Password" is checked. If I click it to turn it off, it asks me for my Master Password. Since I never had a master password, I don't know it. While using Firefox, the master password will pop up, and I have to click "Cancel". This is a real nuisance. I even tried uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it, but the problem persists. I use Norton Identity Safe to manage my passwords and do not need the Master Password feature. Please help!

I only enabled master password so that anyone can't look up the passwords stored in "Saved Logins". But I was under the impression that if someone attempts to reveal my passwords, master password will be required. But putting master password every time i open firefox is too much inconvenient for me.

I do not log out of websites and firefox suggesting a master password sounded okay so I did. I should hae never let my wife use my PC because I was logged out of everything and cannot remember my master password. To retrieve it firefox says I will lose all sorts of logging in dat. This sounds worse than what what master password claimed to avoid. I am madder than mad, so tired of google dogging me and having to register on every web site I look at. firefox was better the explorer once but now I hate it with a passion. I just wanted to use the internet not be invaded by the protectors. Tired of everything becoming obsolete and upgraded and hearing personal information is stolen. I am sick and tired of zuckerburg and zillow and trulia and google and facebook and damn ads following me with small videos on the sides playing crap. I want my master password now and I do not want to lose a single piece of my info doing it you lying ridiculous commies. You are destroying civilization and none of you know how to build a house or fix a car or kill dinner.

I refreshed Firefox to help speed it up and now it won't let me access my saved passwords and when I try to turn on my Master Password it asks me to enter a new password. The 'current password' field won't let me type anything into it; so when I go to enter a new password, and submit, it tells me that it can't change my password.

You guys had a big update, all that fast new performance. My master password (MP) was missing after installing the update.

So I ran that way for a few days, but didn't want my password to be unprotected. So I put in a new MP, but it's apparently corrupted. I can't login to see my stored passwords. The MP challenge popup comes up over and over. Woe is me.

Guess I'll go to Brave unless you have a fix. If I have to lose all my saved password by resetting my MP, there's no reason to continue using Firefox.
