Details

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; de; rv:1.9.2.2) Gecko/20100316 Firefox/3.6.2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; de; rv:1.9.1.9) Gecko/20100317 Lightning/1.0b1 Thunderbird/3.0.4

If multiple add-ons are using the security device, multiple master password dialogs are shown after start of Thunderbird. The dialogs are stacked on each other and give the user the illusion he has to enter the password two or more times. But for real, just one after another dialog closes after the password was entered correctly.

THIS IS NO LIGHTNING BUG! It's a bug of the Thunderbird platform. Firefox has/had the same problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set a master password
2. Install two add-ons which are using the security device
   (E.g. use Enigmail and Lightning)
3. Start Thunderbird

Actual Results:  
You see multiple password dialogs. They are stacked, so only one is visible. One
could think he entered the master password wrong, because it looks like
the master password dialog does not disappear. But you can move the password prompts as shown in this screenshot:

Expected Results:  
Only one master password should appear, as the name "master password" suggests.
