Description

A very strange issue I'm having both in trunk and Aurora 8 (so probably not related to bug 681941):

Steps to reproduce:
1. activate master password for your profile: preferences > security > check "use a master password"
2. open http://html5demos.com/geo
3. close and open Firefox again
4. "share location" on http://html5demos.com/geo and see your current position on a google map 
6. reload page and repeat at will
7. Enter master password when prompted
8. reload page, "share location" and wait... forever (map not displayed)

It turns out that, if you don't use geolocation *before* entering your master password, then geolocation will still work *after* entering it.
Is there a regression window where this bug started happening? You can use the moz-regression tool to help identify.

I'll do that Anthony. Can you reproduce the bug by the way?

I am unable to reproduce this using Firefox 9.0 Nightly. Although, there is some information missing from your steps (like how you are getting your master password to trigger).

I'm not able to reproduce the bug either...
I did restart Firefox multiple times though, and tested both with Nightly 9 and Aurora 8.

Closing as resolved worksforme until I am able to reproduce the bug myself.
