  • Preferences ane not saved after closing in macos

    I'm running foxit reader on a macos. Whenever I make any change in preferences and reopen the reader at a later time all the preferences are reset to default. Even the page I assume is only showed on the first run on a machine is shown every time I open a new document (screenshot attached). Is it a known bug? Any workaround?

          I just wanted to state that I am experiencing the same issue, with the same macOS and Foxit Reader software versions.

          The software keeps and follows the preferences when I open new documents while it is still open, but as soon as I CMD+Q to close it, as jowey mentioned, it redisplays the first splash screen, and the preferences are forgotten.
