Firefox asks for a master password on startup, instead of only when accessing passwords.

I have a master password set, which is asked for if I go to a site that requires a password I've set, or if I want to check my passwords.

Lately, it's started asking for the password on starting Firefox. I can enter the password, or just close the box or hit 'cancel'. Doing any of those things lets me browse, but the latter two at least result in getting the "please enter the master password for the software security device" box again and again.

I DO want a master password, but I DON'T want it to be asked for when I start browsing.

Check what 'add-ons' you have running, some require the master password at startup. (like Email notification does for instance)

Firefox Sync also requires a Master Password to get the user name, password, and sync key from the Password Manager (Software Security device).
