Usually when i start firefox it will prompt me to enter my master password and if i click cancel at the time, firefox will ask me again whenever i browse website that require login.

However now, firefox doesn't ask master password upon start up anymore. Before this firefox will ask upon startup but if cancel it won't asked again. It seem the problem is really escalating. Please advise.

Firefox will ask for your Master Password on start up - when your chosen Homepage has a login box that will want your username and password. Otherwise, your Master Password will be requested for the first web page that you load that will want your username and password.

Is the Password Manager enabled and have you set a master password?

Sometimes you need the close and restart Firefox or even reboot the computer to recover from some problems.
