I use winxp-pro, foxfire beta 3.3 for my browser. Some how I set off a security software password
required pop up box. I don't have a master password set, so I can easily cancel pop up and continue
working. I would like to get that feature turned off again. I am the only person that ever uses this
computer. Please help me get that irritating box turned off.

Thanks

More info: I believe its a message box. The upper left corner/title says password required, within
the box it says asks for password for software security system. I can get rid of the box without
entering any info........very irritating and disruptive to work.

I know for Firefox 2.0 you can remove a master password if you know it by going to Tools->Options and unchecking "Master Password".
If you did set it up on purpose this would cause all saved passwords to be lost.
