Issue:
After updating the Windows Flowdock client to v1.0.3, the app is missing functionality and/or behaving very differently. Some issues may include:
 
  • Links are now being opened in FD's own browser window instead of the user's browser
  • The right-click context menu which contains the developer console does not come up on right-click
  • Windows App settings are gone (start on boot option, etc)
  • Tray menu is broken (Quit and About not working)
  • No dot in the tray bar icon for new flow messages, just for @mentions. Missing the old way back when the orange icon was there: Green dot for flow messages and red dot for mentions/private messages.
  • The window title changes to the flow's name
Cause:
System cache is mismatched following update of Flowdock without restart. 
Resolution:
Reboot the PC to restart Windows following the install.
