Saved logins asking for a password to see or copy saved passwords

I have just updated to 76.0.1. The saved logins is requesting a password in order for me to see or copy a password that I have saved. At first I thought it wanted my Firefox account password however it is asking for the PC password. Trouble is I don't use a password to log in to my PC, I use a 4 digit pin but it will not accept this. I set a password 5 years ago & have no idea what it is. Is there a way to stop Firefox asking for a password so I can properly access my saved login info?

Hello   Emma,

Would you please take a look at this article :

To disable this feature :

Type in the address bar   about:config   and press Enter.
(ignore the warning)

Type in the search bar and look for the preference :

signon.management.page.os-auth.enabled

Change its value to   false.

Then close and restart Firefox.

(this preference may be removed sometime in the near future )

I hope this helps ......
