For others; you don't have to do either of the above.
1. If you have a Master Password and wish to get rid of it so that you
won't get the multiple prompts (warning, your SM passwords will no
longer be encrypted):
Edit|Preferences|Privacy & Security|Master Passwords|Change Password|
Current password: <entercurrentmasterpassword>
New password: <blank>
New password (again): <blank>
*Do not" use 'Reset Master Password' (read the warning).
2. If you never had a Master Password in your 1.1.x version and you are
now being prompted for one with SM2 after it's imported your 1.1.x
profile, you shouldn't. Please post with details on what you are seeing.
Again, *Do not" use 'Reset Master Password' (read the warning).
