1Password 6.8.8 freezes after password entry on Mac running MacOS 11.0.1.

Since I upgraded to Big Sur, 1Password no longer functions as it did. 1Password Mini starts at system reboot, but I can't start the main 1Password app - it freezes after accepting the master password. Neither 1Password Mini nor the browser extension allows me to create a new login from scratch, and I'm not comfortable with 1Password Mini running without having entered the master password. How do I set up my system to return to the old way of functioning - 1Password starting from with the master password, 1Password mini not running, browser extensions running as expected?

1Password Version: 6.8.8
Extension Version:
OS Version: OS X 11.0.1
Sync Type: Dropbox

    Hi @lawesterman!

    1Password 6 has been retired and has not been updated for 2 years now. The version of 1Password that is fully compatible with Big Sur is 1Password 7. 1Password 6 has not been tested with Big Sur, so we cannot guarantee that it works there. Our recommendation would be to update to the latest version of 1Password to make sure that it is fully compatible with the latest version of macOS :+1:
