Whenever Firefox 3.03 attempts to fill in a password it does so properly at first trial.  When a further fill in (no matter whether it's the same page again or another) occurs, nothing is filled in or given as a choice.
When I go the password list (Tools->Options->Saved passwords) this list is shown though only partially the first time, but the second time it is empty.

I did resave signons3.txt (and signons2.txt) as UTF-8 several times, but this doesn't change anything.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Call list of saved passwords.
2. Call list of saved passwords again.

Actual Results:  
After 1. a partial list, after 2. an empty list.

Expected Results:  
Complete list both times.

Error occurs since upgrade to 3.03 (in German).

PS: I tried to search similar bugs, yet it seems that either this has not yet been reported or my keywords were bad.

This also occurs for me. (English)

Tried with "safe-mode": still occurs.
