Master password "Password Required" Prompt Appears Late

On some websites (where I have initially used the Master Password feature to store my user name and password), the "Password Required" dialogue box fails to appear. I have to manually enter my user name and password, hit Enter, and then the "Password Required" box appears and asks for my Master Password. It is working backwards! Any idea on how I can fix this?

Hi,

Please check if this happens in Safe Mode. Please note that you may have to wait until the circle on the tab stabilizes into an icon.

I just read it -- I do not see my problem discussed anywhere within the article. Did I miss something?

The master password may have been expired (30 minutes).

Make sure that you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode.

To see all History and Cookie settings, choose:

  • Tools > Options > Privacy, choose the setting Firefox will: Use custom settings for history
  • Deselect: [ ] "Always use private browsing mode"

I checked -- and I did not have the Private Browsing feature checked. Any other ideas?

I have had this problem for some time. It does not always happen. When I bring up an initial FF window and navigate to a particular site, if the "password required" pop-up does not appear, then if I close the window and reopen it, the pop-up will then appear, and the proper fields will be filled in. Also, if this pop-up does not appear, but I click in the websites userid field to enter it manually, two suggested userids from disparate websites appear, one of which is correct for this site but the other has no relation to this site. Cleared cookies, but no help.
