I've never had a Master password. Why does it keep asking for one?

Are you using Sync to sync any data?

Does Firefox ask for the master password if you open the Password Manager?

  • Options/Preferences -> Security: Logins: "Saved Logins" -> "Show Passwords"

If you have never set a master password yourself then try to reset the master password.
