Posted

Today I wonder about Master Password in my Firefox 15.0 - I have enable it since long long time. When I visit bookmarked site with stored user name and password the site ask me about master password but there is no information about name site which ask for it in dialog box. Everything work fine with one opened site but if I opening many tabs? I don`t now who ask about for it. Can i configuring my Firefox browser to do it more talking about it?

Unfortunately you can't make the Master Password dialog show more information by configuring Firefox. I also couldn't find any extension for it. However, there is an extension that asks you for your master password at browser start so it's not that annoying during your browser session.

Hope this helps.
