Description morgan read 2009-02-08 19:04:54 EST
Description of problem:
On start-up, Firefox requires a separate master password login dialogue for every tab/window requiring a saved password (cf. f8, that is ff3 cf. ff2).  This is very irritating when opening ff having previously closed it with many tabs/windows open that were password protected (and ff is set to "Show my windows and tabs from last time" at Startup).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
firefox-3.0.6-1.fc10.i386

How reproducible:
Always, as above

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set Edit > Preferences > Main > Startup > When Firefox starts: > Show my windows and tabs from last time
2. Open many password protected windows and tabs that require a saved master password protected password
3. Quit ff and re-launch
  
Actual results:
Many password dialogues presented when ff re-launched

Expected results:
Only ONE master password dialogue when re-launched

We filed this bug in the upstream database (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=369963) and believe that it is more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.

Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.

Thank you for the bug report.
