Details

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:73.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/73.0

Steps to reproduce:

Have/create multiple firefox profiles that have master passwords set for Lockwise/about:logins. Start Firefox with a profile (firefox.exe -P -no-remote). Firefox asks for the master password in a separate window without mentioning the profile name.

Actual results:

The user cannot know which master password is requested/to which firefox instance the master password window belongs to. The user then has to try out all master passwords until he/she entered the correct one.

Expected results:

Each master password request window should mention the profile name (possibly only if there is more than one profile). The user can directly enter the correct password for the profile.

This isn't necessary if bug 1149505 is fixed.

It would be better to fix bug 1149505 (or remove profile passwords altogether).
