      1. Yes, thank you for that. And while that patch solves the problem associated with TOTD, the freeze can also be induced by choosing ‘About Frostwire’ from the menus. I previously reported that, but perhaps unclearly. Best regards, Brian Happy 2021

  1. Thank you Brian!
    This helps.
    Perhaps we’ll revert back to JDK14 until JDK16 comes out, it’s causing too many rendering issues and freezes.
