Hi there — I re-installed nightlies, same thing happening.
Do you have any anti-virus software installed? Is it possible to exclude the firefly directory from scanning for viruses? The way sqlite works, it connects and disconnects from the database whenever it does something (an insert, an update, whatever). I’m wondering if an AV product is scanning the database and causing sqlite to have a problem opening it.
