When i open a web page Firefox keeps asking me for my master password as different parts of the web page are loaded. I have never set up a master password. Why does Firefox keep asking for my master password and how do I stop Firefox from asking for a master password?

See "Resetting the master password": http://kb.mozillazine.org/Master_password and Reset your Primary Password if you've forgotten it

If using the chrome url (chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul) doesn't work then delete key3.db and signons.sqlite (Firefox 3.5) and all signons#.txt files (if any exist, Firefox 3.0 uses signons3.txt) in the Profile_Folder.
