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.

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.

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.

Dear volunteers,.. y'all do tremendously valuable work ... adding to the wisdom of the cloud/crowd. Many times I solved a problem by just looking for postings of others who had the similar problem, but now I had to become a member of this community to ask about this problem. The only thing I could find that sort of addressed (I think??) my problem was https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=499233 But I don't understand that tech-talk.

Anyways ... on July 6 the build in password manager stopped responding to my old and tested master password. The password manager just keeps asking for it... as if my password is wrong - but it is not. I have been using the same password for a few years and never changed it. Prior to this mysterious behaviour I did nothing special to my computer or to Firefox. I'm on Win7 with up to date virus and malware protection.

The thing that makes me think that it is not a question of the wrong password, is that after much fiddling in the section "settings and security" with it's options like resetting, changing, removing or showing passwords ... suddenly my old and trusted master password was accepted again (!) but only in the "change master password" field. So I did change my master password into exactly the same old master password that had worked for the last years. I than closed Firefox ... started it again ... went to a site for which it keeps my password .. entered my (old-new) master password ... and bingo it was again accepted. Joy :) The next day however password manager again refused to cooperate! And now 'it' does not fall any more for the procedure to change the master password. I do know about typo's, and I do sometimes use the copy/paste method from hidden plain text files. When password manager finally accepted my password again ... I did - to be extra certain - a keyboard input in the first field and a copy/paste input in the second field and that was accepted by the password manager. Any one ever heard of such a thing?

You guys had a big update, all that fast new performance. My master password (MP) was missing after installing the update.

So I ran that way for a few days, but didn't want my password to be unprotected. So I put in a new MP, but it's apparently corrupted. I can't login to see my stored passwords. The MP challenge popup comes up over and over. Woe is me.

Guess I'll go to Brave unless you have a fix. If I have to lose all my saved password by resetting my MP, there's no reason to continue using Firefox.

In "Settings" the "Use Master Password" is checked. If I click it to turn it off, it asks me for my Master Password. Since I never had a master password, I don't know it. While using Firefox, the master password will pop up, and I have to click "Cancel". This is a real nuisance. I even tried uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it, but the problem persists. I use Norton Identity Safe to manage my passwords and do not need the Master Password feature. Please help!

I refreshed Firefox to help speed it up and now it won't let me access my saved passwords and when I try to turn on my Master Password it asks me to enter a new password. The 'current password' field won't let me type anything into it; so when I go to enter a new password, and submit, it tells me that it can't change my password.

I did a Firefox restore due to suspect browser hijack ( it wasn't). All mu saved logins have been eraases so tried to do a manaul sync.

This pops up a yellow bar along the top of the "Logins and Paswords" page saying "Please enter your master password to view saved logics and passwords" . I don't have a master password set so that makes little sense. To the right of the yellow bar is a button "login". if i click the button ther yellow bar goes away but there is no log in dialog.

What do I do to get Fiefox to sync?
