1Password Firefox browser Preferences when 1Password app is installed on the computer

When I use 1Password in Firefox on computers where the 1Password app is not installed on the computer, I'm able to click on "Settings" for the 1Password Add-On in Firefox to decide how many minutes before 1Password automatically locks, whether or not to lock when computer goes to Sleep, etc. However, after a 1Password update a few months ago, those options are no longer available to me on my personal MacBook Pro, where I have the 1Password app installed. How do I set these Preferences on my personal laptop?

1Password Version: 7.8.7
Extension Version: 2.1.0
OS Version: MacOS 10.14.6

    Hi @KazuT!

    How do I set these Preferences on my personal laptop?

    If you have the desktop app installed, you can set these settings directly in the 1Password for Mac app, under Preferences > Security tab :+1:

  • Copy. I did so; but the 1pw extension in Firefox locks much sooner than I set my preference for.

    Do you have integration with the desktop app enabled in the 1Password extension settings in Firefox?

  • I do. If the problem persists, I'll try turning it off. Thanks!
