Lightroom Classic 8.4 don't show import dialog/detect a memory card (on in preferences) and don't show backup dialog with closing the program (on in preferences every time I close LR)

The Preference file can get corrupted. Resetting the Preference file can fix odd behavior. Resetting in Adobe Speaks is deleting the appropriate file, then relaunching LRC to let LRC recreate it. Links to how for LRC plus a bonus one for PS

In LR Classic v. 8.4 not only problems with import and backup, in library mode filtring on attributes, stars and colorlabels didn't work at all! And probable more functions in LR did not respond... After I went back to v. 8.3.1 everything did work fine! So no corrupt files on my PC, who caused problems in LR. Just a corrupt update 8.4 from Adobe. System: eight-core processor, speed 3.2 GHz, memory 32 GB, operating system on SSD, Adobe on separate SSD, NVIDIA GTX 1060 6 GB.
