Adding a new entry to the file-highlighting-color-scheme causes FM to freeze/crash. Any Idea?

Probably database is damaged. Try to delete %FARPROFILE%\highlight.db.

I just open the config-dialog for highlighting, hit insert, enter everything, hit save and BOOM:)

- screenshot of crash message: None, e.g. it crashes to desktop. Any Logfiles I might append?

I just made a fresh installation of Far v3.0 build 4545 x64 on WIN7 x64, specified a separate profile in Far.exe.ini (UseSystemProfiles=0) and tried to reproduce the crash in accordance with your instructions. Everything worked as expected, no crash occured.
