Hello, I have many months problem with :
When I started Mozilla and i have many (about 30) opened tabs. The popup windows for ENTRY MASTER PASSWORD APPEAR . This is ok, but when i start typing password MANY OTHER STARTING SHOWING UP. This is very annoying and sometime i put only half of password or i type somewhere else.
I hope I'll help to many other people who using MASTER PASSWORD.

You are probably wrong, Tyler. Looks to me like a duplicate of bug 348997.
well maybe, reporter, can you please look at that bug and tell if it is the same as yours?
See eg. screenshot in bug 348997 comment 46...
This looks indeed a lot like DUPE of bug 348997.

I can confirm this behavior of Firefox since I use a master password - on all platforms I use (Win XP SP0,1,2,3; openSuSE 11.0,11.0,11.2(Factory)) with Firefox 3.x and 3.5 (all versions i ever used of it).

This bug is absolutely annoying and sometimes stops firefox from working (eg 60 tabs open wich all ask for the master password (proxy auth) -> typing into a password field becomes impossible and closing them is also sometimes impossible(FF locks down?!)

As I see it this should be fixed to all applicable versions and distributed as recommended update.

best regards

From the level of detail provided in the report it's only possible to say that this is a duplicate of the following bugs: bug 348997, bug 499233, bug 475053

Duping to the unresolved one. Please don't comment there that it should be fixed; we know that. Excessive comments actually slow down the bug's fix.
