My opinion is that the user should not open the configurator at all, once configured and forgot, I don’t remember when I opened the configurator, the plugin works on its own, without my intervention.
The new FH version has been running for several days now. It's fantastic - thousands of new Fanarts and album thumbs but no more duplicates and false-positives. Real good job, ajs!Now I can give the duplicate check and fixed Fanart update a stress test.

The fact that the provider has the Local attribute is that at startup it read the FX from your directories, for what reason it was downloaded and the file was saved, but not imported into the database with the correct source, it is not clear. FH at the time of checking the picture for take, does not know anything about the source from which the file was received and where the previous pictures came from. Therefore, this will not work.In my database there are many manually scraped Fanarts which also exist online, sometimes at multiple sources.
The only option that I see is either to replace the source in the database, or to delete pictures, clear the database of missing ones, and start playback. Or reduce the number of fanarts to 3, then there will be less attempts to download a picture.I this case FH downloads these Fanarts again on each playback and the spinning circle at the top and the progress bar on the bottom are displayed:
