Form requests master password every time. This is a new installation of Firefox.
As I have no old master passord, I cannot choose a new password. My URL is

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. When NY Times requests log in, click in log in area
2. form comes up to enter master password

Actual Results:  
could not enter log in

Expected Results:  
master password form should not have appeared. I have no master password and
have no way to change it or choose a new one.

This bug happens on Linux, too.  When I upgraded from RH9 to Fedora Core 3, and
from mozilla to firefox, firefox allways asks for a master password.  I never
set one, and nothing I try is recognized.
