I may have just reproduced this once on a Windows 10 account I last used in 2018 for testing OS re-auth… I logged into Windows with a PIN and then when I got the re-auth dialog to reveal a password I only had the password option… I entered my password, reloaded the tab, revealed the password again and then it defaulted to the PIN option… I assume this is an intentional Windows security design… not allowing the non-password auth if the user never entered their password for the Windows session. 

Sollace, for now you can set `signon.management.page.os-auth.enabled` to `false` in about:config but eventually when we work out the kinks we will remove that.
