Windows 10 10.0 amd64
I have been a longtime JabRef user (~10 years) and largely had positive experience with it both on Windows and Linux. Thank you for providing such a great piece of software!
Few weeks ago I switched to v5.0 on my windows 10 laptop. Since then I have been seeing a lot of freezes for several operations. The most unbearable one is with search, similar to this issue and often takes ~15-20 seconds to show the result. In addition to this, other actions are also very slow. Eg: Pressing new entry button take ~4-5 secs. Typing anything in the entry editor takes 4-5 seconds. Pretty much any operation take 3-4 seconds. After each click CPU spikes to 100% usage.
My library has ~800 entries. I tried the same with a dummy 2-entry library and things were very fluid. At least few things I tried with dummy library. I looked into Help->event log and did not find anything there.
Are there any suggestions, recommendations, or changes in preference to try?
I will also try version 4.x as well to see if I see similar behavior.
