PF8 Doesn't save favorites in Sidebar

Any favorites I make, mainly folders on my secondary drive, just vanish, sometimes when just making a new window. This is hard to duplicate.

    Dont't waste your time writing here, it's useless :-(
    Uninstall PF8 and get back to PF7 or forget about it ;-P

    Well, I finally got tired of wrestling with Pathfinder 8 and the whole coreservicesd issue and the sidebar problem and, most importantly, the almost total lack of customer support. So I downloaded Forklift 3. Sure, I would have preferred a functional Pathfinder as I've been using it since the beginning, but it's clearly time to move on. FL3 is lean, has a clean design, saves my favorites just fine in the sidebar, quality online documentation and they even have a smiley face in the tool bar to get customer feedback. It was fun while it lasted. So I'm uninstalling the whole mess and I'm outta here!

    I too have the missing Favourites issue - and reported it in PF 8.0.xxx

    Can we get some idea of when this will be addressed - as it is very frustrating. PF 8.1 crashes way more frequently than 7...and each time I have to start all the browser windows up and set them up again.....really breaks concentration.

    So sad to read all these comments. I had inquired if the memory leak from PF7 was fixed in PF8, and the response I got was it was best to try it on my own machine. Based upon what I read here I would not gamble with that upgrade, and I'm certainly not paying for it to have more headaches. Time to look for other alternatives - I guess I'll look at Forklift but my initial glance at FL doesn't actually impress me when I look at my workflow under PF7.
