Can you open a PIO terminal and post the result of pio home?

Hello

Open PIO Home in your browser by this URL => http://127.0.0.1:8008
PIO Home has been started. Press Ctrl+C to shutdown.

And the News section is starting again to idle

Is there any difference if you open that URL in your web browser? Is anything else affected other than the Recent News and Recent Projects sections? Can you still open projects? Create new ones? View library and board stuff? Things like that? Any peculiar firewall or AV software settings? i.e. I recently switched to Bitdefender, and in Autopilot mode it was a bit too eager at stopping certain bits of PIO without active notifications… stuff just broke. When I checked the Bitdefender logs, I was able to see what it had been doing and tell it to stop breaking stuff.

Hi good question I uninstalled Avira AntiVir
I did not use PlatforIO for the last 3 hours but I just checked it and core Recent News and recent Projects are idling.

But if you visit the URL shown by pio home do you see a proper webpage or is it not loading at all?
