Frequent crashes when trying to update from web

I got the 6 version and I have currently installed the 6.4.4.2. on a Win 8.1 PC.
I added some scanned books in pdf format and tried to do web search for title, isbn, cover etc. After doing it several times it crashes just after clicking on the update button randomly. Only killing the process can stop this thingy. Moreover doing this on a batch of files from the first one to the last that crashes the process just makes you loose everything in that particular session (meaning hours lost in the process). After doing this numerous times it just makes you uninstall the damned thing. I am just sorry I started my database with this thing.
Can't a simple save button be added? It is simply ridiculous. One has to close the program and restart it to have all saved. That is double ridiculous. Or simply make it save after an action has been completed.

Hi, recently we had to update web-plugins because Amazon changed its policy. Probably you updated plugins for the latest version that is only compatible with the latest version of Alfa. Please contact support to get the latest version 7.3

What about the save button? Does the 7.3 version has it?

ccipp, the database is saved every time you save a book card or add a book, that is why Save button is not needed.
In your case something goes wrong in Alfa or .Net Framework, that is why you need to update

Not in the case the software crashes.
