Initially, Firefly refused to start. I discovered that Bonjour Service wasn’t running & fixed that. Now Firefly starts up in configuration mode (in the taskbar) but not started. When I click on “Start Server” I get the pop-up about “firefly Media Server scanning may take some time”. In a few seconds, this disappears and . . . nothing. Sometimes the “Stop Server” button changes to “Start Server” & sometimes not.

Try downloading the 1589 version from Don’t download one later than that, it’s still kinda flakey from all the changes lately. 1589 is stable, and likely fixes the issues you are seeing.
