Cannot delete the checkbox for Master Password - desktop synced with mobile device - is the password for that what is needed on the desktop?

Re-installed Firefox 4 recently after initial problems with Rapport software. Now get a box to enter a master password to proceed - just close it but it is annoying. Visited Options and under Security unchecked the Master Password box but another warning box appears and when this is closed the Master Password box is re-checked. I have never created a Master Password. My desktop is synced with my mobile device and I have a password for that - is this the master password? If not, what other options are there for stopping this box appearing when Firefox is activated?

The name and password for Firefox Sync and the Sync key are stored in the Password Manager.
So if you use Sync then you will get a Master Password prompt the first time that Sync wants to connect to the Sync server.
