Ever since the last Firefox update, my password manager doesn't fill in my passwords. This is happening on all websites where I have saved passwords. It doesn't prompt for my master password, either.

In the password manager, all of my sites and saved passwords are still present, and it will still prompt me to save new passwords. It seems there's a bug in the loading of a page.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Save password at a website with consistent url (i.e. www.myspace.com)
2. Close firefox, then re-open
3. Navigate back to site with saved password
4. If necessary, enter username
5. Password will fail to fill in automatically
6. Check Password Manager - the password is saved there correctly
Actual Results:  
Password doesn't fill in automatically

Expected Results:  
Password fills in automatically. If this is the first time I've accessed a saved password since opening Firefox, should also prompt for master password.
Works for me with Firefox on Windows XP. Please retest with a new profile.
If it doesn't happen with a new profile there's some corruption in your password files. In that case make a screenshot of your passwords and then delete or rename the two files signons2.txt en key3.db in your profile.
Marking WFM based on comment #1.
