    I have this same issue. I deleted all my prefs and reinstalled. It went away for a while but has returned intermittently.

    That works but it, recurs intermittently, as you said. I suspect it may be a migration issue though.

    PF8 also keeps forgetting my custom browser settings. Got so frustrated that I tried ForkLift...alas....I'm spoiled. So...

    I have the same problem. Is there a resolution? I upgraded to 8.0.4 hoping for a fix but still get a blank window.

    You have to delete the preference file.

    I've deleted the preference file numerous times. The blank screen always comes back.

    I know...I'm having to do this multiple times per day - which cancels out any productivity advantages of this app. It doesn't seem worth it.

    I also have this issue. I have several browser windows minimized to the dock, but when I double-click a desktop icon on any of my spaces or right-click and choose new browser, I get the blank window. If I choose a new browser pointing to Home, I get a good window. If I restore a minimized window and then try to create a new browser by clicking a desktop icon or right-clicking New Window on the dock, I get a good window.
