  • Bug FoxitReader.exe process doesn't close itself

    I have had this problem for over a year but am finally reporting it. On a regular, intermittent basis, as I open and close various PDF's, I notice that multiple "FoxitReader.exe *32" processes remain open in the task manager. I have to manually End Process to kill them.

    Running latest Foxit Reader version on Windows 10.
