Hi All,

I'm using PathFinder 6 on OS 10.8.2

In the left sidebar I have a "Search" section. There ther are many entries I created under finder. Some of them are no more valid.
I removed them from the finder and from ~/Library/Saved search but those entries are still present on pathfinder side bar. Now I cannot even click on them (I can click but nothing is selected and nothing appears)

    It worked.
    I used another method : I edited the file with XCode and removed all the invalid entries, then restarted Finder & FP.
