Exporting passwords: I'm being asked for my Windows 10 password but I don't have one set

I'm using Firefox 113.0.2. I want to export my logins and passwords, but when I click the 'export' option, a Windows Security window opens asking for my Windows login. I don't have a Windows login set (no one else has access to my PC).

According to Firefox's own info, if you don't have a Windows password, the dialog asking for one shouldn't pop up.

I can't get past this and I've googled everything in sight. Does anyone else have a solution to this?

Thank you! Averill

Try to set the Primary Password, so you can enter that instead.

Thanks, Cor-el. I set a Primary Password, exported my passwords and removed the Primary Password again. I really wish there was no need for a password. No one else has access to my PC.

Thanks again, Averill
