Primary password prompt appearing frequently

I have had a primary/master password set in Firefox for years. It only prompted me to enter it once per session. Since version 90, it now pops up at least once a day at random times to ask for the password again. This has happened on 3 different devices where Firefox is installed.

How can I stop it doing that or at least extend the time to a week? I know there are hidden config options for these, but they look to be on the default values, so have never changed.

I've been seeing the same issue in Nightly on Linux.

Do you have Sync enabled ?

No, I've never used Sync. I'm not 100% sure yet but I haven't seen this since the update to 90.0.2 which was only in the last couple of days.
