I love 1Password, but for the last several weeks, I have been experiencing strange behavior. There are a couple of primary symptoms:
1. In the Windows desktop version, the main screen (showing either Logins or Notes) will simply be blank or will repeatedly flash as though data is being processed but this continues for perhaps 60 seconds or longer. Sometimes the flashing stops and I'm okay to go, sometimes not.
2. I will start the Windows desktop version and things will load quickly, but after using the Notes or Logins for a while (and doing other things on the computer), 1Password will simply lock. It will appear to be responsive, but I cannot access any menus or display any information beyond what was on the screen at the time of lockup. I can use Task Manager to end the 1Password task, but restarting after that never works. Restarting the computer will fix things unless item number 1 above happens. During this time (of lockup), Task Manager reveals that 1Password is using 20-25% of the system's CPU--far and away the largest amount in use by the system.
Here what I am running on a Dell laptop:
1Password version 184.108.40.2065
Chrome version 23.0.1271.64m with 1Password extension
Windows 8 Pro version 6.2 (build 9200) Note that the strange behavior of 1Password began prior to my installing Windows 8 but has become more frequent since the Windows 8 install.
I would appreciate any thoughts or help. Restarting four or five time a day is a bit of a drag.
