Tab Sets Keep Disappearing from Panes - All Revert to "Computer" at random times

The title says it all. I keep 2 windows open, with two panes in each window, and 4 named tabs in each pane. Each group of 4 tabs is saved as a tab set. Much of the time they operate as expected, but at seemingly random times, one pane or all 4 panes changes on its own so that one or all panes lose the settings. That is, they revert to 4 tabs that each are titled "Computer". Each shows the same list of mounted volumes. I can use the "Tab Sets" icon in my menubar to reset them correctly, one pane at a time, but this happens often enough (daily or more) that it is a serious annoyance. This has been going on for many months (perhaps years).

    May I ask you to follow the instruction and check if the issue persists:

    1. Delete Path Finder and its traces via AppCleaner
    2. Download the latest version of the app from our site
    3. Launch Path Finder and move it to the Apps folder as the app suggests

    Please note that the uninstallation disregards all preferences you have set on your end. If you’d like to save them, navigate the following path and copy both the preference file and folder to the safe location. 

    ~/Users/your_username/Library/Application Support/Path Finder/Settings (folder) ~/Users/your_username/Library/Preferences/com.cocoatech.PathFinder.plist (list)

    Once you re-install your app, replace the new files in the same location with previously saved files.

    Let me know how it goes!

    Best Regards,
