master password for the Software Security Device shows multiple windows

When I launch firefox the security window pops up asking for the following:

Please enter the master password for the Software Security Device.

Everything works fine except I get, as of today, four of these windows. I have to close them all out except for one to enter my security password. Once I do that everything works ok.

Is there a way to fix this so multiple windows don't pop up asking for the same thing? I just need the one security window asking for the master password.

Asking multiple times for the master password will be fixed in Firefox 4.

This can happen if you reopen tabs via session restore and you have saved a name and password for the site in a tab and there is a log in form.

Upgraded to Firefox 4.0 and it still happens.
