The above link tells me that, if I have the 'AVG Internet Security' software this problem would occur. But I do not have this software on my computer but rather the G-Data Internet Security. When I followed the steps as outlined on your Internet site, the result is the same afterwords. As soon as I restart Firefox, the message pops up again and again that I should enter my master password. This only occurs after I installed the latest Firefox (71.0, 32-bit).

When I need to use a website for which Firefox has a login stored, the usual box comes up asking for my Master Password. But it won't accepted my Master Password when I enter it. And it won't let me cancel the box/request for Master Password. I know my password well as I use it on a daily basis. Nonetheless, I tried entering it into the popup box 6 times, and it's still not being accepted. Why has Firefox suddenly stopped accepting my Master Password. I am in desperate need of accessing several websites today that require logins that have been stored on Firefox.

I did a Firefox restore due to suspect browser hijack ( it wasn't). All mu saved logins have been eraases so tried to do a manaul sync.

This pops up a yellow bar along the top of the "Logins and Paswords" page saying "Please enter your master password to view saved logics and passwords" . I don't have a master password set so that makes little sense. To the right of the yellow bar is a button "login". if i click the button ther yellow bar goes away but there is no log in dialog.

What do I do to get Fiefox to sync?

I only enabled master password so that anyone can't look up the passwords stored in "Saved Logins". But I was under the impression that if someone attempts to reveal my passwords, master password will be required. But putting master password every time i open firefox is too much inconvenient for me.

No problems before I signed up for an account to use Firefox Send. Immediately after that I started to get an annoying pop-up window asking for my master password immediately on browser start.

I want to be able to browse sites without entering a password, and I also want to continue using a master password but only for sites which require a log-in.

I deleted my Firefox account in the hopes that would fix the problem, but the pop-ups keep coming.

I tried unchecking "ask to save logins and passwords for websites" in preferences but that didn't work.

I have not deleted my saved log-ins and tried a new/clean browser because I spent a long time getting all my add-ons and log-ins set up and I don't want to have to reinstall everything, and I am concerned that if I save my profile that it will just re-install the problem.

Hi,

I reset the master password for Firefox and I didn't process that all the saved passwords would erase (I was tired and did not fully read the warning before I pressed "ok"). Is there any way to go back to the list of the saved passwords (like "go back to a previously restored version")?

Thank you for any help you can provide.

i have set up a master password, which get prompted when I start Firefox, but when I type in the password Firefox adds 4 characters before my typed characters. These 4 characters do not show up in the password box. If you enter a blank box - four dots appear. So I spend ages trying to get my password logged correctly. By this time Firefox brings up a no connection error message! I have tried changing the password but this has no effect. I seem to recall Firefox doing this a while back but it was sorted by next update. Any advise would be gratefully recieved as it driving me nuts now!

For the last few months (starting with an upgrade to new version), Firefox has asked for my master password immediately upon startup (or as soon as startup is complete), regardless of what web page I am viewing. This does not seem right; it should prompt for master password only when a site that I visit requires a site password.

Another recent post on the support forums advises going to security settings, and disabling the option for "use master password." That's not right, either.

1. Every time I was the browser I get a pop up requesting my master password. 2. I have chosen the option to eliminate the master password but the system isn't recognizing my password so I can not accomplish this. 3. I try to reset my master password using copying and pasting "chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul" without the quotation marks of course. I press Enter but no reset page ever comes up so I am unable to reset the password. 4. I tried another option but can't recall exactly what it was (I've been at this way too long) where a code will be emailed to me. I've tried two different email acounts and checked spam. I never receive the code.

I guess I will have to either delete my account (if I'll even be able to without the password) and make a new account and import all my bookmarks or live that that password pop up forever. But...before I do that I'd really like to do things right by simply getting a new password. I've noticed many people with similar problems. What's is up? Love the browser but this is ridiculously complicated or impossible to reset a password.

Since just yesterday Firefox wants a master password every time I open a site that wants a log in. I updated just now and it didn't help. It seems like it started just after I installed McAfee Total Protection. I don't really want to wipe all my passwords out of Firefox to reset. I did'nt set a master password so i don't know why it thinks I have one.

Problem:
Cannot access passwords protected by master password.

Normal mode symptoms:
- No master password is ever asked
-- Trying to set one is futile (see screenshot)
- Certificate is at status "Ready" instead of "Logged In" or "not Logged In" (see screenshot)
- No fields are filled with usernames and passwords when needed.
-- No prompt for it is shown either

Background:
I transitioned from windows to linux
I made a full copy of all my profile when transitioning.
I controlled firefox's version to make sure I would transition using the same version number.
I have backups.
Nothing appears in the browser's console when I start or when I try to change master password.
If I try to view the passwords I have, however... ~120 messages appear telling it cannot decrypt (see screenshot)

Tried:
1-Safe-mode:
-- The master password system works as it is supposed to. I get a master password prompt at browser's first password use.
2- Deleting prefs.js
-- Still not working
3- Disabling all extensions manually
-- Still not working
4- Deleting storage directory
-- Still not working

-Trying 2 + 3, 3 + 4, 2 + 3 + 4 or 2 + 4....
-- Still not working.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance

I've recently found, to my surprise, that my Firefox 52.9 64bit Linux had its Master Password removed. My computer did not have anyone physically access from the time MP was enabled until it was disabled. I was out for a few hours and there was no access to my computer which is located in a rural area. In the morning I opened up FF and noticed that FF's MP was disabled. I'm very diligent at keeping my computers clean of malware. Is there a security glitch in FF 52.9? I have over 30 years of computer admin experience. Addons screencap enclosed.
