Running Path Finder 9.0.5 (2026) on macOS 10.14.6 (Mojave).

URGENT! Please fix ASAP. I need to use this feature many times a day.

When I select a file in PF9, and then any of the menu items that are supposed to email that file, it does NOT work.
Instead, in my default Browser, Brave Browser, I get a File Save dialog. Even if I complete that dialog, my default email client (Outlook 365) is NOT opened. This worked perfectly in PF8.

The "Command" menu items are:

  • Email...
  • Compress and Email...

    Turns out the default email client, as set in Apple Mail > Preferences, was somehow set to "Brave Browser". When I changed this back to "Outlook", then the PF9 email commands worked properly.
