I may be way off target here, but didn't I see here that someone had set
things up as you suggest, i.e. with a Master Password, but then had to
enter the Master Password each time he accessed one of his other
accounts, so instead of getting a request for the accounts password, he
got a request for the Master Password so that the accounts password
could be accessed?? They were asking how to stop this happen and was
advised to remove the Master Password.
The issue was that SM 2 pre-release versions (including betas) asked for
the Master Password per account that was set to be checked on startup
and that those prompts appeared all at the same time at startup. This
has been fixed with today's nightlies (bug 381269) and thus in time for
2.0 RCs and final by prompting for the Master Password only once at
startup if one is set, unless the new signon.startup.prompt pref is set
to false. It's really just a workaround, though: canceling the prompt
will return to the old behavior. A real fix is not expected before SM 2.1.
