I just switched from Mozilla 1.7.3 to firefox. I had an empty master password in mozilla.
Firefox imported all passwords from mozilla whithout problems. However, when I know
go to a site which requires a password it will pop up the "Enter master password"
dialog. Clicking on "OK" and leaving the field empty will bring up the password propmt
again. Clicking "cancle" will make it fill in the password. This is *very* annoying.

I tried to change the masterpassword to get rid of this misbehaviour, but I just can't!?
When I try to change it, it will always tell me that the "old" password is incorrect.
