Primary password popup - how limit it asking me for a password only when I am trying to access a page

I am sat in front of a PC for most of my day. Firefox spends most of its time minimised while I use document and video applications. On average the Primary password login box will activate over everything I am doing frequently - by frequently I mean 2-3 times an hour or more. It is annoying and nonsensical. What am I doing wrong or is this simply a flaw in firefox? In my imagination at least it makes sense for it to ask me for a password when I want to use a password restricted domain.

Yes I have synced turned on. Thanks for the link. I guess this is not going to be resolved. The issue, for me, has been going on for months. I am surprised I have been so patient in using the browser.

That bug report speaks of this but there's no solution apparently. I've always used Sync AND a Primary Password w/o issue until recently. The pop up literally occurred for the 4th or 5th time today (as EVERY day lately) as I'm just reading this thread! W/o a solution I don't think anyone is going to use it any more.
