I use Firefox and T bird. Firefox asks for a password on startup. If I cancel the prompt goes away and Firefox works normally. Can I stop this?
I recently acquired a new PC. I installed Firefox and T bird as usual and used mozill backup to transfer emails etc from the old PC. I use a master password in T Bird which works fine. When I start Firefox I am asked for a password. The masteer password does not work and cancelling lets Firefox continue apparently normally. Efforts to set or change the master password in Firefox fail as the master password is not recognised and leaving the field blank will not let me change the master password. How can I resolve this?

As you mentioned on startup its asking Master Password, Did you homepage website is login page ?
Remove your Master Password
My homepage website is Google.co.uk. The request for a master password appears even when I am logged into Google.
Did you try to Reset your master password?
