  • Reader window on Windows 10 slides around

    Recently Foxit Reader has begun to behave badly on Windows 10 (Pro). I've seen this on 9.7 and 10.0. If I do the standard move a window process, grabbing the top bar of the window with the left mouse button down, and start moving it, the window does not move with the mouse, but slides ahead or jumps around. I have trouble positioning it where I want it. It sort of seems like something that an iPhone or other fondleslab toy might do, but it is not how applications on Windows 10 work. I have "snap windows" turned off in the system. Anybody know of a fix, or is this something where the software uses a feature of the Windows API that changed recently? The problem may have begun after a recent Windows Update, something I don't do too often.
