For some oddball reason, this file will not scan. It is a file of bookmarks that I create to backup my URL bookmarks or favorites in Mozilla. I can scan every other file in my system, 'cept for this one and its renamed backup.

Short of deleting the file, is there any workaround and is the development team aware of this?

Thanks in advance

OK, I guess I should clarify. It appears that the program hangs on scanning that file. If it is indeed scanning the file, it is take an enormously large amount of time to scan what essentially is a collection of about 1,000 links. (Though I've not counted he links or let this run overnight.) This is not limited to one machine as it will do it on the desktop and the laptop.

Is this enough information or should I post more?

Thanks in advance.

I was using 0.88. I had assumed that the program would auto-update itself. So, I updated it to 0.88.1 and manually scanned those files and it works fine.

Thank you.
