Enter master password dialog comes up multiple times if there are multiple pages with saved passwords in home page. This means that the user has to enter the master password multiple times before he can use Firefox.

Preconditions:

1. Master password is set
2. Multiple pages with saved passwords is set as home page (example: www.gmail.com and http://flickr.com)
3. Firefox is set to go to home page when Firefox starts

Behaviour:


Expected behaviour:

Ask for master password only once and other tabs that have saved passwords should 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Firefox
2. Multiple tabs open
3. Enter master password dialog shows up
4. Wait for all the pages to load
5. Enter master password
6. Dialog comes up again
7. Steps 4-7 repeat for the number of tabs that are opened that have saved password

Actual Results:  
1. Enter master password
2. Dialog comes up again
3. This repeats for all the tabs that have saved passwords

Expected Results:  
Ask for master password only once and other tabs that have saved passwords should handle this gracefully
