Firefox for android is asking for a pin but I am sure I have never created a pin for Firefox and it does not accept an empty. It also does not appear to have aplace for pin creation. I found a support notr that talked about windows credentials, but I am currently on android and my main computer is Linux. How do I find out what pin it wants?

Does it ask while accessing passwords or elsewhere?

Mostly while trying to see passwords, but I think some other times too. I lost my house and all computers except a phone a tablet in the Marshall Wildfire last week, and trying to put my life back together is not being helped by requests for nonexistent pins.

These are your android credentials (the pin you enter on start-up).

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, TyDraniu. I have been removing clumps of hair for three months trying to figure out what PIN my Android phone is asking for. I had NO idea it wanted my phone logon PIN. This should be made MUCH clearer in the request.

Does seem a bit redundant, though. If you've gotten in to your phone and FF browser, you've already given it, haven't you?
