I have been successfully using Moneydance (latest version) on my iMac (Catalina) for many years.
Over the last week it ihas suddenly taken over a minute to load the programme. One running it is fine, and backs up at normal speed.
I also have Money Foresight installed, that is also taking over a minute to run.
I have tried a reinstall to no avail.
Any thoughts?

    I had a similar experience a couple of days ago. In my case, Money Foresight (unregistered v52 with MD 2020.2 (1929)) was trying to call home to the mother ship (www.moneyforesight.com) which was not responding.

    My quick and dirty fix was to edit my local 'hosts' file to redirect www.moneyforesight.com to 0.0.0.0 (this is on Windows and Linux; I assume it is possible with Macs, about which I know nothing)

    As Money Foresight (the Extension) has been discontinued by the developer and succeeded by Foresight (the Tool) included in current builds of MD, I assume the original web site has been decommissioned - it is in any case still off-line.

    Hope this helps.

    Take a look at your memory settings for Moneydance. I have to adjust my memory settings in the Moneydance.vmoptions file after every update to 2048m from 1024m since it loads so slowly.

    AFAIK, the Money Foresight extension is built into MD and the separate extension should be removed. Use Toolbox extension to remove orphan extensions since updating MD sometimes leaves a few around.
