Seen using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9b1) Gecko/2007110903 Firefox/3.0b1.

STR:
1. Using a fresh profile without a Certificate installed, set a Master Password.
2. Reset the Password using chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul.
3. Check Password Manager to make sure the Password box is unchecked
4. Import a certificate into Firefox.
5. Go back and try to set a Master Password.

Expected: I would get the usual "Enter and Reenter Password" Dialogs.

Actual: I get a dialog also asking for the Current Password. If I try to enter the last known Master Password into that dialog, it doesn't take it. It then becomes impossible to set a master password without potentially resetting it again.

juanb said there might be an existing bug on this already, but I couldn't find it under any of the open PM bugs.
