Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:47.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/47.0
Build ID: 20160604131506

Steps to reproduce:

I had ff 46.0.1 installed, with auto-update deactivated by local IT security provider via group directives. Until yesterday, the unchanged master password was working.
This morning FF 46.0.1 refused to accept the master password.
I noticed that FF 47.0 was available. I installed it. Then the Master Password was accepted again.


Actual results:

FF 46.0.1 refused to accept the master password.


Expected results:

Password should have been accepted all of the time.
