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?

iMac, 27-inch, late 2015, running Catalina 10.5.5. Downloaded the "Caprine-2.47.0-mac.zip" and put the unzipped app in my Applications folder. I double-clicked on it (also tried right-click > Open) but I just got this message, "The application “Caprine.app” can’t be opened."

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

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