Recent upgrade fixed the issue.

After password protecting GRUB entries with command (grub-mkpasswd-pbkdf2) and appending the file (/etc/grub.d/40_custom) with user/password entries, the option (--unrestricted) is used in the file (/etc/grub.d/10_linux) as in (CLASS="--class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os --unrestricted") in order to enable normal user to boot GRUB entries without entering registered user/admin password.
However, after recent upgrade of GRUB to version (2.04-12) on Manjaro Linux, now this (--unrestricted) option is not working anymore and GRUB is continuously asking for password on boot.
