    Hi,
    I've downloaded FBReader for Mac, as I've had a long and happy relationship with it on Windows. I don't need it as a reader as much as I did, thanks to my ipad, but still. Anyway, I think I've inadvertently told it to create my library twice, which means that most books are shown as having duplicates. This is annoying. I thought I could simply delete the app and reinstall, but no luck - when I reinstalled, back came the wonky library!

    I've tried:
    App Cleaner
    Searching for anything 'fbreader' or 'FBReader' related from the find window in Finder
    Manual going through the Application Support folders in both the my own Library and at root.
    And... nothing! The only think I can think of is that the plist (if there is one) is hidden, so I'll try that next. Anyone have anything else to suggest?

    Thanks!

    ETA: in this case the problem was fixed by simply deleting the path to the library in the app settings. It would have been nice if that had been more, er, obvious...

    The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:
