This probably isn't a problem to a lot of people that use a music player that does ripping. But, if you rely on Sound Juicer to do your ripping, it's practically impossible to open the preferences dialog.
If anyone else is having trouble open the Preferences dialog in Sound Juicer, please leave your comments on Launchpad using the link below.
As you can see, the 2nd link shows this has been a problem even before Hardy was released, but never fixed.
