Password expiry

Hi all, Since latest updates to my Ubuntu system, both Firefox and Thunderbird frequently ask that the primary password be reentered. This is tedious, and not necessary on my system, which only I have access to. Can I change the settings either to only require a password once only when the programme is invoked or to extend the time that a password remain valid? (If there is a method - I can't find it!) I'd appreciate some advice. Kind regards 13arry 13arker
