I have stored a login name and password for the page http://www.mail.com/ 
and I use encryption to protect my passwords.  So, every time I go to that
URL, I get a master password prompt.  Sometimes I enter the master password
and press OK.  But at other times, I'd rather just type in the acount name
for that page directly, and not use the wallet/password manager to fill it
in for me.  On those occasions, when prompted for my master password, I bonk
the Cancel button.  I expect the master password prompt to go away and not 
come back immediately.  But what happens is that the prompt comes right 
back, until I have cancelled it a few times.  

Then if I type in a password, and press enter, it prompts me for the master
password again, also several times.  This is such a waste of time.  
Very annoying.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
0. First, have stored a password for www.mail.com, then
1. Go to http://www.mail.com/
2. when prompted for the master password, press cancel button.
3. 

Actual Results:  
The master password prompt comes right back again.

Expected Results:  
The master password prompt should go away and stay away for that page.

I am using mozilla (seamonkey) 1.8a4.

Zug, good catch.  Thanks.
Based on https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=210433#c5 which says
"On pages with X fields, the dialog is reasked X times, after pressing Cancel!"
I am marking this bug as a dup of that one.
