Is this a joke? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

All it does it give you all those redundant master PW prompts *before* TB actually appears. How does this fix anything??

Not working for me ... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I've been dealing with multiple master password prompts for ages.
I've tried everyting I could find on google. I keep getting two prompts for my master password. One is from TB and the other seems to be from Lightning Calendar because it goes away if I remove the calendar extension.
I installed StartupMaster but it still happens eve after disabling the option "delay password prompt until extensions are loaded".
I think that the program works fine for Firefox but is not working in Thunderbird, at least for me.
This bug has been around since TB version 3.0 and I'm now in version 38 !. I can't believe that Mozilla has not been fixed yet ....

Is Startup Master supposed to deal with the prompt from Lighting or is this something that is out of your hands ... ?
Can you help ?
Thanks

Firefox should have this option built-in - thanks for making it! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Latest version of Thunderbird (38.2.0) pops up too many times for master password. I decided to use this add-on and now thunderbird asks me only one time for the master password. Up until now I have had no problems with this add-on, it works great!

Workaround for TB bug 177175 and improves personal TB-startup process Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Loading of Thunderbird takes a minute even from SSD, so I'll concentrate on something else. I'm using Lightning with multiple accounts and get in the current Version (38.1.0) 4-5 master password input boxes. And when I'm not paying attention and do not enter the master password for a while the server connection might time out.
This add-on fixes these problems. Only one prompt directly after starting Thunderbird without delay.
So simple and so so effective!

Thank you

für mich komfortabel, denn das Masterpasswort muss sowieso eingegeben werden

Fazlasıyla işimi görüyor. Yapanın emeğine sağlık. Benden başka kimse mozillama girip ayarlarımla oynayamaz :D

Uninstall. Please Uninstall? Really? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Originally I just wanted to try it out, but the add-on just couldn't let me go. It wouldn't uninstall. Gone from the add-ons page, but the pop up stuck around. I eventually had to uninstall firefox and delete the local user appdata (on all accounts?) just to get the damn thing off. Might have been something I'd use in a different setting, but with this problem... no. Just no. To top it off I had to deal with this during finals week, so you get a permanent 1 star. I will not change it, I will not delete it. Good day, sir/ma'am.

Finally a fix for a longstanding Thunderbird annoyance (multiple password prompts when using calendar addons, etc.)

Çok Başarılı Rated 5 out of 5 stars

İşini gerçekten iyi yapıyor. Belirlediğiniz parola veya şifre olamdan firefox'u sizden başka kimse açamaz.

Works perfectly! Adds, or rather corrects something which you would expect to find in ThunderBird by default.

@Arty2:
In FireFox, the only use of the master password is to protect the other passwords. The FF version of this add-on basically extends that use to have it restrict access to the program itself. You are right that this is easily circumvented.

In ThunderBird, the master password is used by default to restrict access to the entire program. You can't circumvent it, even if you would disable this add-on.

False security Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does what it advertises, however it doesn't protect you in any way, since it's just a plugin and plugins can be disabled without access to browser.

Holding Shift while clicking to open Firefox, will force Safe Mode, which disables all plugins including this one, yet cookies and logins are still accessible.

Don't get me wrong, it might fool the fools, but it's not enough for actual security.

Gets Job Done Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is good because it does not let you open Thunderbird unless you enter your master password. However, you have to tick the associated box first. It is on Thunderbird > add-on title.

Cancel button opens firefox instead of closing it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Go to StartupMaster Add-on, click hypertext link MORE
Check "Quit if the master password dialog is closed"

Perfect fix for the Lightning bug that triggers numerous master password prompts on startup. Just a single popup on TB 31.
