I forgot my master password on browser on old computuer. I have tried what I think is the correct one multiple times, and want to keep trying options so I can access my passwords from the old computer. Is there a lock-out feature for this or can I continue to try?

Updated to Windows 10. Suddenly, in Firefox, master password popup appears every time a login is needed. Pop-up can be removed by clicking cross without entering password. However, log-in passwords are still remembered, and still work, without entering master.

Checked security setting, and yes, master password is now set. It wasn't set before. So it's set, but presumably without a password. Can it be unset without losing all previous remembered passwords?

Problem:
Cannot access passwords protected by master password.

Normal mode symptoms:
- No master password is ever asked
-- Trying to set one is futile (see screenshot)
- Certificate is at status "Ready" instead of "Logged In" or "not Logged In" (see screenshot)
- No fields are filled with usernames and passwords when needed.
-- No prompt for it is shown either

Background:
I transitioned from windows to linux
I made a full copy of all my profile when transitioning.
I controlled firefox's version to make sure I would transition using the same version number.
I have backups.
Nothing appears in the browser's console when I start or when I try to change master password.
If I try to view the passwords I have, however... ~120 messages appear telling it cannot decrypt (see screenshot)

Tried:
1-Safe-mode:
-- The master password system works as it is supposed to. I get a master password prompt at browser's first password use.
2- Deleting prefs.js
-- Still not working
3- Disabling all extensions manually
-- Still not working
4- Deleting storage directory
-- Still not working

-Trying 2 + 3, 3 + 4, 2 + 3 + 4 or 2 + 4....
-- Still not working.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance
