This has been consistent during the last 4 or 5 updates. I am currently using a version of Firefox that allows me to use PasswordBox. When I start Firefox I get two Master Password boxes. I will fill in the password in the top one and close the other one and Firefox will start normally. Why are there two boxes? How do I get rid of the second one?

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.

Why does Firefox asks for Master password on startup (for synchronizing) on desktop but not on the Android edition?

I use a Master password and Firefox Sync on an Android device (58.0.2) and a desktop (ESR 52.6.0). In both setups I have not selected to synchronize my passwords.

On every startup Firefox on Desktop asks for my Master password. As I read in the Mozilla knowledge base [1] and an answer in the Firefox support forum [2] this behavior is intentional as the login used for the Firefox Account is protected by the Master password. Although I find it annoying to deal with the Master password dialog on each startup I recognize the rationale.

It occurred to me that Firefox for Android does not ask for my Master password on every startup, but only in case a password may be entered in a web-site's form. Although Firefox Sync is activated and regularly successfully performed.

I actually have two questions:

A) Is the protection of the Firefox Account login on Firefox for Android less secure than with Firefox for Desktop (presumed a Master password is set in both cases)?

B) Is it possible to adjust the settings of Firefox for Android to behave as the Firefox for Desktop (regarding Firefox Account login protection) and/or vice-versa?

I love the master password to protect my logins, but it would be really great if you guys added in a delay. I should be able to set it to where I only have to enter my password once a day or once every 2-3 hours. Yes, of course leave the option to have it pop-up every session, but I really wish I didn't have to do it everytime I open firefox.

I migrated my firefox profile from windows to linux. When I first opened firefox, no prompt appears for the master password (when it is first needed). When I go to the preferences page, it shows that I don't have a master password set.

When I try to set a password equal to the one that is used for the in the logins.json passwords, it mentions "Unable to change master password". It doesn't matter the password I enter. I always answers the same "Unable to change master password"

I already tried making a different profile and then copying just the password db and json files. I was able to access my passwords just fine.

How can I get the passwords working with my firefox profile?

Firefox won't stop prompting me for master password

Hello,

Long-time Firefox user here. I'm running Firefox (version 75.0, auto-updates enabled) on a Windows 10 (Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362) desktop PC. I'm using the built-in Firefox password manager, although as a general practice I do not log into it using my master password unless absolutely needed (for example, to check my email or Slack). For the vast majority of the general browsing I do, I stay logged out of my accounts.

This has worked just fine for years. However, lately Firefox keeps prompting me to enter my master password, and won't stop prompting me for my password while I'm browsing. Oftentimes I'll randomly receive the prompt, often on sites that should not be asking for a password, such as a blank New Tab or sites that don't have any associated data in my password manager.

What's frustrating is that, when I close the prompt, Firefox will immediately re-prompt me again to enter my master password, despite me not wanting to log in (or on some sites, not having an account or even a login page). It will keep repeating this prompt incessantly, sometimes for 5-6 times before going away briefly, only to reoccur when I navigate to a new site.

My browser is configured to be a bit more privacy-conscious, and I'm wondering if this may be causing this behavior. In Options > Privacy and Security, I've set Custom blocking for the following items: - Cookies (all third-party sites) - Tracking content (in all windows) - Cryptominers - Fingerprinters I have also set my browser to delete cookies and site data upon closure.

I am using the following plugins, with auto-updates enabled: uBlock Origin HTTPS Everywhere Privacy Badger Decentraleyes Cookie Autodelete Firefox Mult-Account Containers Facebook Container

I've searched the support forums for help on this topic and found the two articles below. However, after trying the offered solutions, neither fixed the underlying behavior. Also note that I am not using any third-party antivirus solutions, like ESET Internet Security and Avast, which have been known to cause similar issues with the Firefox password manager. Here are the articles I found: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-keeps-asking-me-master-password (I tried these steps and still had the same behavior happen) https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1176785 (this just disables the Password Manager, something I ideally would not have to do to stop this behavior)

Can anyone provide any insight into why Firefox keeps doing this? I love Firefox but lately it's become a drag to use because of this. Thanks all.

I like the idea of using Master Password, and I don't mind typing it every now and then.

What I am wondering however, is why doesn't the prompt actually tell the user, which site or feature of FF is trying to access the credentials?

Just to clarify, I've already seen it answered that FF Sync can cause password to be asked some time after start up and that there are workaround such as disabling Sync or forcing it to prompt right after start up, this question is not about that. Its about not having some indicator to what is asking the access to credentials in the first place, be it sync or the site you're on.
