This is a bug that is really annoying and for which a fix is needed. Please follow this link as it needs more people to report it.
I can only suggest that if you have to go into HTML view you try saving and closing the topic without going back to Design View, then reopen it. I don't know if that will work but it has to be worth a try.
Please let us know whether or not it works.

Thank you for the quick response, I'll be sure to request a real fix to this as well.
I have tried saving within HTML View, but it still requests to apply the update to the Master Page when I do so. A good idea though for sure.
Although, I should mention that it is important for me to save my changes that I have done in HTML View, apply the update (which of course there is none) and then close the topic. Closing the topic is key because I have noticed that if I go back to Design View directly and make some changes, it will tell me I have changed the Master Page anytime I try to save that topic, no matter what view I am in. Closing the topic and re-opening it though seems to get it out of this loop, and once again only HTML view changes cause the issue.
For what it's worth, we're also seeing this in RoboHelp 8.
