Box for master password keeps erasing part or all of the entry, sometimes repeatedly.

Can take several tries to successfully complete an entry and get Firefox to take it. This can occur on first starting Firefox, or later, if I cancel out of the first prompt because I don't initially anticipate needing any passwords.

11/3: I seem to be able to mostly eliminate the problem by making sure that any password-requiing site that I am visiting (or the Firefox homw page) has completely loaded before entering anything in the master password box. One never knows when a page update might hit you and zap the entry, however.

11/12: For some reason a second "submit," on a blank password box, is often required to make Firefox take the master password.
