Description Thomas Spura 2008-12-10 10:40:14 EST
Description of problem:
I always shut down my computer without closing firefox -> it kills firefox, so when starting the next time, my tabs from the last time will getting opened again…

Then I should type in my passwort for the passwort manager several times, each time for a tab, where firefox has a password saved for me.

It should only ask once for all tabs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. killall firefox
2. continue last session
3. tipe your passwort several times 

Actual results:
master passwort for passwort manager is asked several times

Expected results:
should asked only once

I cannot reproduce it here with firefox-3.0.4-1.fc10.i386 -- having firefox opened on both bugzilla.redhat.com and gmail.com (where obviously I need passwords for both), when killall firefox, and restarting it, I am asked only once for password (and confirmation of certificate for XBookmarks).

Closing as WORKSFORME. Reporter, please, reopen with additional information, if you know how to reproduce it.

I do the same like you, but I get asket (in this case) 4 times, because I have 4 pages opened, firefox fills a password for me.

The only difference is, that I use x86_64, but that should not be the problem, I guess.
Maybe someone can the 'worksforme' confirm with 64bit??
