User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.7) Gecko/2009021910 Firefox/3.0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.7) Gecko/2009021910 Firefox/3.0.7

The "software security device" re-prompts for all tabs opened with "open all in tabs" feature from the links toolbar, forcing user to enter SSD master password for each tab that was auto-opened.  This was not a problem in Firefox 2.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add a few bookmarks to a link bar folder to sites that require authentication.
2. select that link bar folder, bottom link "open all in tabs"
3. all tabs open but then the SSD requests the master password over and over for each tab.  After the first couple prompts, the SSD dialog loses window focus.
Actual Results:  
Entered the SSD password for the first two or three tabs, then re-focus the SSD prompt to enter the remaining ones.  Should only need to enter SSD master password one time like in Firefox 2.

Expected Results:  
Should only need to enter SSD master password one time like in Firefox 2.

This is a security concern because when the focus on the SSD prompt is lost, a user may inadvertently enter their master password into some other window, or a browser session and if they hit enter, it may go somewhere unexpected.
I suspect this can be dup'd against bug 475053 or, at least, will be fixed by it.
