Find Any File Beta Testing
Version 2.3.3 is now in the works.
To get the latest beta version, simply open FAF's Preferences and check the "Include Beta & Preview version" option (however, if you have downloaded FAF from the Mac App Store, you won't find this option), or download it manually below:
See here for a list of recent beta versions. Pick the one with the highest number, or with the most recent date.
I suggest that you keep your current (non-beta) version around, e.g. by renaming either one of them or placing them in different folders, so that you can keep trying both versions in case the beta causes new issues.
