blank browser window

Like others I am suddenly getting a blank window for every Path Finder browser window I open.
I have deleted libraries and restarted - no good.
This obviously renders the product unusable for me and is impairing my work.

The one bit of information that I can add is that this happened immediately after I installed a VPN client and started using it.
That leads me to guess that some 'phone home' routine may have encountered a hiccup and there is no recovery path.

Please let the developers know that this bug makes the entire product unusable.
I hope that helps them prioritize the fix near the top of their list.

    Update. From reading other posts with the same problem I discovered a work around.
    If I close all PF windows and then double click on my hard drive icon on the desktop then I get a browser window which is not blank.

    Thanks for contacting us!

    Which versions of macOS and Path Finder are you running? May I ask to take a screenshot or a screen capture to share with us?
    Are there any steps we could take to reproduce this issue?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
