The prior thread as can be seen here was closed without us being able to respond:

https://support.cocoatech.com/discussions/problems/142146-pf8-saved...

I think we understand 'Saved Browser is supposed to save your current view of tabs only.' our query is that once that saved browser is recalled that process does not happen and the last opened browser remains instead.

    Hi Jordan thanks for clarifying. Steps to reproduce were in the prior thread. There was no option anywhere to reply to the thread to re-open it (that I could see).

    Pathfinder 8.5.1 (1964), OS Mojave 10.14.5

    Not wanting to add more oil to the water of this discussion, but the competition (i.e. Forklift) have just implemented:

    "Improved workspace handling - When a workspace is opened, the old tabs get closed and the tabs of the saved workspace open in the ForkLift window"

    Which is what we've been requesting. :)

    Hi Daron,

    May I ask you to install Path Finder 8.5.4, then check if the issue still persists and provide us with more details?

    Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Hi Jordan, we're now back from holidays so I can test. This is with 8.5.4 and a dual pane horizontal browser. The first time PF is loaded and the browser is opened I get:

    LH pane: iCloud Drive, daronbrewood, and Downloads Tabs
    RH Pane: iCloud Drive, daronbrewood, Dropbox and Transcend Tabs

    As an example if I close the Downloads tab, then close the Browser, and then hit F19 (set to open that browser) I get the LH pane showing: iCloud Drive and Downloads Tabs, the 'daronbrewood' has now vanished from the browser.

    So there is definitely something wrong with the routine that looks to reset the tabs in the dual browser.

    Hi Daron,

    Thanks for your report and sorry for the delayed follow-up!

    Could you please confirm if "Save Browser" Works as expected for a single-pane browser? We are also testing this on our side.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Jordan, I've just dome some testing and it does look to preserve the state of the tabs in a single Browser situation, so it could well be that the issue is with dual Browsers only - and alas those are all I use.

    Not a problem, fingers crossed it is fixed in the next release.
