How do we know if the master password request is not bogus?
I have recently enabled a master password in Firefox and find that the master password windows pops up at unexpected times on various web sites.
How is the user to know if it is not a bogus request from an attack website?

Can you provide some screenshots, edited if necessary to remove sensitive information. This is a public website.
- see Use a Primary Password to protect stored logins and passwords
- How do I create a screenshot of my problem?
- When and why does this seem to popup ?
- What happens if you do NOT enter the master passsword when requested ?
That should give a clue as to why it is needed.
If you are trying to log in to a website, and you navigated to that website then you will need to provide login credentials. If you have stored them and protected them with a master password Firefox will try to enter the details for you. Once you have set up the master password you will need to re-enter it again for instance when you add more login credentials, or if you view your password details in a new session.
By the way do you use Firefox sync ?
