I have been using FTMM extensively for 2 years, and it crashes on the average of 3 times a day. One of the reasons I am looking at other solutions and have found this thread helpful. I have followed this post and many others on FTMM and FTMM2 (finally did send FTMM2 back for a refund). I do hope that one day Ancestry will work out the bugs as the concept is good. It does seem to work well for some, and I wish them well. I wish I was one of them, however if you followed many of the other blogs on this topic as well as other reviews you will find we are not alone. And as one wise person mentioned. Those who do not have problems do not post.
Enjoy the season everyone and be safe.
