Well, I thought it was better, but it still died after trying an update. My final work-around was to no-longer point to the iTunes database but to the folders containing the mp3s — has now been working with no problems for a couple of weeks, but I can’t access iTunes playlists of course.
Doing a search it seems like a few people have had this problem. I’m guessing it is a conflict with BitDefender, but still don’t understand why FF was trying to do the Update in the first place.
People elsewhere with the same problem have recommended setting ‘Always Scan’ to ‘No’ — what does that do?
It only does rescans when someone is connected to the server. It’s like turning down the scanning interval — it makes the problem occur less frequently, not disappear.
