Does it happens in safe-mode (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode) ?

Anything in Tools -> Error console when this happens ?

   Well, it is. In Help About is Mozilla Thunderbird version 3.0 (c) .... and then this build string.

 I should have tested it. It does not happen in safe mode - so it's caused probably by Lightning trying to load remote calendar. But still, is it a bug of Lightning or Thunderbird. If master password prompt is already showing, then showing another prompt, if extension tries to access saved password should not happen.

    Nope, nothing.

Go into the preferences window, under Tools -> Options, select Advanced and then the General tab under Advanced. Select Config Editor. This opens a new window, acknowledge any warnings (if there aren't any then it doesn't matter).

Then search for "general.useragent". There should be a general.useragent.override value set, right-click it and select the Reset option.

Then go back into Help -> About, and you should get the string you expect.
