Force master password prompt again without closing browser

I use a master password prompt on Firefox (and Thunderbird) on my laptop. However, after I enter the master password prompt, it will not ask for it again until the browser closes. This is understandable, as it would be annoying to enter it every time.

However, there are occasions where I would like to require the master password prompt *again*, without closing and reopening the browser. For example, if I close the laptop the computer suspends, but if it were stolen, an intelligent attacker could easily bypass my login screen and would have an open firefox with instantaneous access to *all* of my websites because the passwords are stolen.

Ideally, I'm looking for a terminal/command-line option for this, as it will let me re-require the prompt with a script (eg, on suspend or hibernate), but really any method to make this happen would be ideal.

Is this possible?

Windows 10, Version 10.0.15063 Build 15063. Firefox ver. 66.0.2 I think this problem roughly corresponds to the last Firefox update, but I can't be sure. Previously the request for my master password only came after I first opened Firefox, and then if I restarted it and tryed to log in to a saved site. Now it comes up many times during use of a site, sometimes when I typing in a request for something unrelated to logging in. It also interrupts the typing on the site and starts typing the rest of what I'm doing in the request for master Pw box.

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

1. Every time I was the browser I get a pop up requesting my master password. 2. I have chosen the option to eliminate the master password but the system isn't recognizing my password so I can not accomplish this. 3. I try to reset my master password using copying and pasting "chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul" without the quotation marks of course. I press Enter but no reset page ever comes up so I am unable to reset the password. 4. I tried another option but can't recall exactly what it was (I've been at this way too long) where a code will be emailed to me. I've tried two different email acounts and checked spam. I never receive the code.

I guess I will have to either delete my account (if I'll even be able to without the password) and make a new account and import all my bookmarks or live that that password pop up forever. But...before I do that I'd really like to do things right by simply getting a new password. I've noticed many people with similar problems. What's is up? Love the browser but this is ridiculously complicated or impossible to reset a password.

i have set up a master password, which get prompted when I start Firefox, but when I type in the password Firefox adds 4 characters before my typed characters. These 4 characters do not show up in the password box. If you enter a blank box - four dots appear. So I spend ages trying to get my password logged correctly. By this time Firefox brings up a no connection error message! I have tried changing the password but this has no effect. I seem to recall Firefox doing this a while back but it was sorted by next update. Any advise would be gratefully recieved as it driving me nuts now!

The above link tells me that, if I have the 'AVG Internet Security' software this problem would occur. But I do not have this software on my computer but rather the G-Data Internet Security. When I followed the steps as outlined on your Internet site, the result is the same afterwords. As soon as I restart Firefox, the message pops up again and again that I should enter my master password. This only occurs after I installed the latest Firefox (71.0, 32-bit).

What I'm after is for Firefox to ask for the master password when Firefox starts and not an indeterminate time after Firefox starts. Yes, I use Sync. Why? I can be typing something and then an uninvited master password prompt appears and I'm suddenly typing in the password prompt box. It's annoying enough to, I believe, be seen as a bug.

There needs to be an option where if a master password is set then an option could be added to Firefox to ask for the master password before the browser actually appears on the screen.

Can this be done now? Maybe some hidden setting somewhere? There used to be a legacy plugin that could do this, but since Firefox 57 appeared, that plugin no-longer works. (It was a legacy plugin.) I also can't find anything else that can do the same job.

Who could please help me with this? I think this would also be useful to many other people and and not just me on how to do achieve this.

Why does Firefox asks for Master password on startup (for synchronizing) on desktop but not on the Android edition?

I use a Master password and Firefox Sync on an Android device (58.0.2) and a desktop (ESR 52.6.0). In both setups I have not selected to synchronize my passwords.

On every startup Firefox on Desktop asks for my Master password. As I read in the Mozilla knowledge base [1] and an answer in the Firefox support forum [2] this behavior is intentional as the login used for the Firefox Account is protected by the Master password. Although I find it annoying to deal with the Master password dialog on each startup I recognize the rationale.

It occurred to me that Firefox for Android does not ask for my Master password on every startup, but only in case a password may be entered in a web-site's form. Although Firefox Sync is activated and regularly successfully performed.

I actually have two questions:

A) Is the protection of the Firefox Account login on Firefox for Android less secure than with Firefox for Desktop (presumed a Master password is set in both cases)?

B) Is it possible to adjust the settings of Firefox for Android to behave as the Firefox for Desktop (regarding Firefox Account login protection) and/or vice-versa?

As per other people, the 'enter master password' box comes up when starting Firefox and can cause the whole thing to become unusable. However, the main issue appears to be that Saved Logins (both using them and saving them) has ceased working. If I remove the master password and restart Firefox, they are all available again. Master Password can be set and all is fine until I restart Firefox, whereupon they stop warking again. Same thing happening on my daughter's laptop which also just updated to 59.0.1.

I've recently found, to my surprise, that my Firefox 52.9 64bit Linux had its Master Password removed. My computer did not have anyone physically access from the time MP was enabled until it was disabled. I was out for a few hours and there was no access to my computer which is located in a rural area. In the morning I opened up FF and noticed that FF's MP was disabled. I'm very diligent at keeping my computers clean of malware. Is there a security glitch in FF 52.9? I have over 30 years of computer admin experience. Addons screencap enclosed.

I've noticed there's a delay of up to 5-10 minutes in asking for the master password after I've opened my computer and browser. In this time, I'm still able to log into my email and other accounts with the saved details before inputting the master password. Doesn't this defeat the point of the master password? Does anyone have any ideas of what I might be doing wrong? Thanks

The new version of FF is fantastic and on my tablet with the atom processor it has really speed up the response time of FF. This is one problem I have with all of my computers from Atom processor to Intel I5 quad core skylake processor systems. When I open FF the password windows takes a long time to show up to 5 seconds and if I do not enter my 20 character password in time, I get up to 4 password windows (I usually have FF startup with a web page that askes for username and password). Here is my suggestion for startup modification. 1) I would rather have the password window popup first before FF shows on my desktop. This way you enter the password or hit cancel which opens FF with password manager available or locked. Another idea is I know Libre Office uses something called quickstarter which is a tiny program always running in the background to speed up loading of Libre Office. It would not bother me in the least having a small FF program always running in the background to help speed up the loading of the password manager since FF has been my default browser for 10 years.
