I enabled the Firefox master password but FF kept asking for it every 20 seconds while I was using gmail, so I wanted to disable and remove the master password. When I uncheck the master password box, a popup screen asks for the master password but entering it in the field, the "remove" button is and remains unclickable. So now how do I get rid of the master password? Thanks a lot in advance!

You can check the value of the security.password_lifetime pref on the about:config page.
You can set the MP to an empty string to disable it.

Thanks cor-el; Firefox isn't asking for the password anymore, but I thought I'd remove it all the same. The value of the security.password_lifetime is set at 30. Should it be anything else? Or could I just leave it since I'm not prompted for the master password anymore?
Yes, just leave it to the default of 30 minutes.
