I can select the "Please enter the master password for the Software Security Device" text in this dialog box.   Non-interactive user elements like this aren't selectable in other modal dialog boxes, like the Tools -> Options text.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Nightly
2.Create a Master Password to store saved passwords.
3.Invoke the Master Password dialog box by going to Tools -> Options -> Security -> Saved Passwords
4.Attempt to select the text in the dialog box with a mouse
Actual Results:  
The text is selectable.

Expected Results:  
The text should not be selectable.

Picture to follow.

This bug still exists in Firefox/30.0 on Windows.

I believe the prompt string "Please enter the master password for the Software Security Device" needs to be changed from a read-only text box GUI element to a "label" GUI element.
This bug still exists in Firefox/35.0.1 on Windows.
