Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hello there!

It sounds like you were using an extension (that may have become outdated with the new update) or a system setting to unlock Firefox before fully opening and this may have been changed with the latest update.

Some add-ons that may have become obsolete now are:

If you were using any of these (or something similar), they will no longer work with Firefox Quantum. Please wait until the developers come up with updated versions (or a new extension).

As an aside, the only "unlock" password I know of for Firefox is the Master Password: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-master-password-protect-stored-logins

I hope this helps.

Thank you for using Firefox!
