I don't use much FB but this is a nice little app, fast and snappy. Nice dark mode too.

I love this app but 2.41.1 introduced a bug on my Mac running Catalina. Clicking on the emoji symbol causes the entire main window to go blank. Nothing short of restarting the app fixes it. I've tried using System emoji, Facebook emoji, and Messenger emoji. I deleted prefs and reinstalled, and it didn't help. Help?

At least in OS 10.11.x this is the case for me as well. In later OS’s (10.13-) this issue has so far not reoccurred. Caprine would sooner or later update whether I want it or not, so I keep an archived copy of version 2.39 around; and also place a fake/empty file “caprine-updater“ (no file suffix) in the place* where Caprine otherwise would download the actual updater, thereby (so far) preventing automatic updates. (* user library -> Application Support -> Caches)

I was using Messenger, also an open-source app. But it was slow. This seems faster and has more features.
