    This just started. I have tried restarting my phone, optimizing, and clearing data. When I swipe down to see all my apps, then start to type in the search bar, I get an error that says Finder Keeps Stopping - close app.

    Please help. Googled and can't find anything on this.


    Just to add --- I also tried Safe Mode and the same issue occurs

    OK - this is really strange. It seems to only have this behavior when I type F in the search bar !!?? Other letters seem fine but as I start to try to search for facebook, typing the f causes the crash. I do use a google keyboard, but as mentioned, I tried it in safemode, and also tried using the default samsung keyboard.

    Man, getting the same as you on my Note 8. I think thats an issue with Finder App, not with third apps like facebook or someother app that begins with an 'f' or 'k'. SAMSUNG please help us! Not acceptable this type of an error on a USD 1k smartphone.

    Here's an easy fix for you...
    Type a space first...then f.a.c.e.b.o. or k and you won't crash even with Facebook active and enabled...

    I couldn't delete Facebook, so I simply disabled it. The problem instantly went away.

    Uninstall face book update. Disable facebook app installer . Download previous version of facebook from browser ( not play store ) .install that facebook app update. Now both will work
