Pathfinder won't open on first attempt with Mac Catalina

When I first attempt to open pathfinder Version 9.1 (2040) on Mac Catalina 10.15.4 the icon bounces for 60 seconds and then goes back to unopened. During this time there is no start up image or anything visual that looks like pathfinder opens. I then can't click on the app icon for another 2-3 minutes, when I do nothing happens. Then after a couple minutes the app will open normally. Has anyone else had the same issue?

    Hi there, 

    First of all, please accept my apologies for such a delayed response. I understand how frustrating it might be not to receive any response for such a long time. I apologize and will make sure this won't happen again.

    Such issue might happen if your Preference files malfunctioned. In this case, please delete your preferences file ~/Library/Preferences/com.cocoatech.PathFinder.plist and check if the issue still persists. 

    Looking forward to your reply!

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
