When I start the m/ff 3.6.3 browser, the pop-up prompt asking for the master security password appears twice. It was not doing this for the 1st month i had it, and it just started doing it all of a sudden. What could be wrong? O/S = Vista Home Prem.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

It could be this bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=499233 - - multiple master password prompts triggered by filling form logins in multiple tabs

If you have multiple tabs with form logins restoring when you restart Firefox, that could cause multiple master password prompts.

There may be other bug(s) causing multiple master password prompts. One way to make the master password a little more usable is the StartupMaster add-on, which prompts once for the password at startup, then never bothers you.
