Re: Sudden closures

Phil & Pauline,

Can you please explain in more detail what you are doing.

Are you saying there are 50+ records to review for one person all in the same Web Search Window?

Or are you going back to the Focus Window and opening hints for another person?

I this latter case usually a new Web Search Window is opened so you will be accumulating many open Web Search Windows.

Unless that is you have changed Tools > Preferences > Workspaces to allow re-use of the Web Search Window.


Have you tried using the External Web Browser option?


If it really is a solid fault then it needs reporting to Calico Pie.


Regards, Mike Tate

Thanks Phil. I’ve been seeing the same thing but hadn’t joined the dots.

I have experienced this problem occasionally.
It only occurs for me when:

  1. the embedded IE web browser window is open,
  2. I have reviewed quite a few Internet data matches (say 50 or more) since last opening FH,
  3. opening of new pages / results seems to slow up and then it crashes

At the time it crashes I am not aware of having requested anything unusual or different.
When I re-open FH everything works fine (until the next time).
I just wonder whether there is a memory leak somewhere?
Just a thought, I have no evidence to support it.
