I have the same problem as you... And, for the moment, that's why I prefered the previous version... Even if there is more results now, it's all mixed together and I can't really find exactly what I'm looking for... If ever you find out how to resolve it, please tell me... I'll do the same for you... Thanks!
Since you don’t like the new version of frostwire, and nearly everyone that seems to try it doesn't (which I'll get to in a minute), you can install the old GOOD version of frostwire, V4, by going to the following link:http://oldapps.com/frostwire/php
This is a link to frostwire V4.21.6 and NOT 4.21.8…the latest version of frostwire 4 turned off file sharing by default which made no sense whatever and was probably done in an attempt to kill off the music network that all of us built, and force users to switch to this new useless version of frostwire that’s torrent only.
Frostwire 5 is a 100% different program that only searches torrents…and the makers of frostwire have deceived all of us users and are trying to kill the old network that the old frostwire connected to…version 5 of frostwire finds only a FRACTION of the music of the old version and is MUCH harder to use for nearly everyone, which is what you also noticed as well…the frostwire forums are already filling up with complaints and they can’t ignore the millions of us forever…
PLEASE read the following messages in the frostwire forums, spread the word, post how you feel about what the makers of frostwire are doing, and make your voices heard:http://forum.frostwire.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11359http://forum.frostwire.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11241http://forum.frostwire.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11120http://forum.frostwire.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11149
In the meantime you can use the link above to download the old AMAZING and WORKING frostwire 4 and you can uninstall the cr*p useless new version 5 from your computer.
PLEASE NOTE: I'm posting this reply to several people who have complaned about the new frostwire, don't know how to get the old one back, and the frostwire makers have IGNORED their question (not suprised considering how many posts there are about the new version of frostwire being totally useless)
