In security I have use primary password enabled. I have sync enabled. When I first open Firefox, the "Please Enter your Primary Password" dialog appears twice. At first I thought I was repeatedly miskeying the first time. But then I noticed that if I drag the modal dialog box, then a second box pops up behind the first. In fact, some times, I can start typing when that second dialog appears. As in the case today when I just caught it. Please see screen shot attached.

FireFox 99.0 Windows Enterprise 10 OS Build: 18363.2212 I am on a Private Browsing window when I see this error.

Please do what it takes to cause me to not have to enter the master password twice.

Thank you,

@donthavecow Is this a comment leading to a solution of the double password challenge or merely an observation of how I'm using FF?
