Hello. I had to reinstall firefox and while i eventually managed to get my phone to sync with my computer, the browser asks for a primary password in order to see the saved logins. The problem is that i don't use a primary password, and is there any way i can get around this?

You can install the About Sync extension in Firefox 72 and newer on desktop to check what data is stored on the Sync server via the about:sync page provided by this extension.

Close and restart Firefox to access the about:sync page added by this extension (see the about:about page for possible about pages).
