PF8 bug from time to time and reset to default the sidebar.

If you backup it, it takes a couple of seconds to restore it, or... you'll cry :-(

To dev team of Path Finder, thanks for all your amazing job and keep cool with all the complains, hard work when a new release is born ;-)

    They released the most buggiest software I have ever encountered in the last 20 years!

    Sorry, but backing up is no guarantee that you'll get your sidebar settings back permanently - sometimes just restarting PF or opening a new browser will make the sidebar default to the original settings - there's no way that I've found to ensure that you'll see your custom settings every time - something that I never even had to worry about with PF7.

    macOS 10.13.5 (17F77)
    Darwin 17.6.0
    PF8 8.0.1 (1867)

    Sidebar reset to default systematically if I close (not quit) PF8 window.
