Hello, I am French but I try to write in English... When I launch Firefox, I know it will ask for my main password. This is what I need, me for I activated "Sync" (to synchronize my profile on PC and Android). My problem is not "how to prevent Firefox to ask for my main password" (many people ask for that on the net). It is "how to prevent Firefox to wait about 30 seconds before asking for my main password".
I did read only one thread about the trouble I encounter each time I launch Firefox but I gess many people experiment the same thing. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1312988 (you can see the source is a very good one :-) ) I entirely agree with the author, who wrote :
"The delay in the master password prompt is up to 20 seconds and is so annoying, it just gets in the way when you are trying to work."
So, you launch Firefox, you look for one of your bookmarks to click on it but then, Firefox stops your action and a window asks your password. Worse : you are typing words in the adress bar and after some seconds you discover that you were typing the last words in the password pop-up window. Awfull ! You can then 1/ grumble and type your password 2/ grumble an press the Escape key
I use sometimes Seamonkey, that asks for the main password within the second you click its shortcut on Windows desktop. An excellent solution ! But after that, I notice that Seamonkey does not have a Sync function (and Firefox asks for the main password 20 or 30 seconds after opening only if Sync is activated).
To sum up, it would be great if Mozilla / Sync could remove the delay before asking for the main password, even if it has to ask for it right after clicking on the desktop shortcut. Thanks for any advice, Michel
