Firefox stops downloading all content in all tabs when the master password prompt is displayed.

This is especially bad for people with slow connections. Such people are likely to use many tabs, and be annoyed when they leave the computer to download some tabs but fail because the master password prompt is displayed (or even when they don't leave the computer - anything that slows the operation of Firefox is bad).

There is no reason this should happen, and it breaks the whole MDI concept.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a master password set in firefo
2. Open firefox
3. Open a bunch of large pages in new tabs (you may need some big ones if you have broadband)
4. Browse to a site where you have a login, so the master password prompt is displayed
Actual Results:  
All tabs stop loading.

Expected Results:  
Firefox should continue to load as usual.
