User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4
Build Identifier: version 2.0.0.5 (20070716)

I was using Thunderbird(2.0.0.4)with automatic update set.  It downloaded and installed new version 2.0.0.5.  When I started the new version it asked me to enter my master password so it could get mail.  I entered my old password and it would not recognize it.  Tis happened repeatedly.  The only way I could solve this was to load a saved version of my profile (the chrome and extensions directories).  Same thing happened on upgrading to Firefox 2.0.0.5.  That time I installed a saved profile.

Have you had this problem with upgrades since then?  It sounds like something might have gotten corrupted in your profile if so, since it doesn't sound like it's a common problem.
