Mozilla is preparing a very useful change to Firefox Lockwise, the password manager built into the browser. The Firefox homepage will display an authorization window asking for Windows 10 credentials before allowing you to edit or view saved links.
This change is really important and welcome, because if you accidentally forget to lock your computer, anyone can open Firefox Lockwise and steal saved codes access. An extra level of protection is very important in this case.
The new feature is already available with the release Firefox Nightly 76.0a1 and prompts the user trying to access Firefox Lockwise to enter Windows 10 login credentials, e.g. a PIN, before viewing, copying, or editing stored login credentials.
If a user does not know their password, PIN, or other authentication, Firefox will not allow them to see their credentials.
This method makes Firefox Lockwise more secure, but the application has a usability issue. The Windows credential import request appears every time you want to see the credentials for each of the saved accounts, and this is really annoying.
It could of course be resolved in the future.
