I'm running the trial for Windows Blinds and while it looks good, I've noticed Firefox fails to start. All other browsers, including waterfox - work well.

Anyone else using Windows Blinds and have any issues?


I've noticed the app tends to crash itself as bit as well.

I'm not aware of a "trial" version of the Win8 beta being available. As far as I knew, the only way to get the Beta was to be a Stardock subscriber (which I am). So, where did you get the beta?

If you're talking about a beta version of the Win7 version of WB, that's so olds as to be useless.

I subscribed and I've also since bought the Stardock bundle. It's definitely the Win 8 beta. (It's also worth paying for).

Strangely enough it still works when in single screen. Just not in surround.

Sorry I took so long to get back ... Stardock made the Beta 7.95 version available just recently and when I installed that, it caused some problems with my system. Launcher shortcuts in the bottom window bar (I'm using the Desktop) would launch a "miniaturized" window that was too small to use. I unloaded WB and confirmed WB was the cause. So, I reinstalled the Beta v7.91 and the problem has not returned.

If you're using 7.95 you might consider going back to 7.91.

Also, you should read the Beta Bug reporting forum at Stardock -- there might be some reports that are useful.
