    Primary Password Required


    Frustrated. Prior to yesterday, I was able to access my favorites w/saved passwords. As of yesterday, I receive a message "Primary password is required" and "Please authenticate yourself with primary password". Now, within Settings, I cannot change radio button to "Automatically", because the message appears again. Any help would greatly be appreciated, as I cannot move forward. Thanks.

    :)

    Primary Password

    Firefox 81.0
    Having an issue with the primary password. I start Firefox. I begin typing in the search box and about midway thru the primary password dialogue box pops up. I do not notice and keep typing the rest of my search which ends up in the primary password box. Is there a way to fix this?

    My thought is the primary password box should start immediately start with the starting of Firefox or they should stop the auto primary password request and let me manually activate it.

    Any suggestion on a remedy?
