Menubar icon duplicates

Recommended Posts

Salutations all,


Probably two updates/several months ago – I can't pinpoint exactly when the issue started – Alfred began spawning three identical menubar items.




It's never more than three, and I have not seen two instances either.

Functionality-wise, there seem to be no negative effects.

When I delete one or two instances, the others remain working fine.

After quitting the duplicate processes, until only one process remains, after some time the duplicates reappear again. (I can't pinpoint a specific event or timeframe for this).

Alfred is naturally set as a Login Item, though AFAIK, a restart doesn't produce the duplicates. 


Activity Monitor shows three processes as well. 




It's definitely not a use-breaking issue, though the behaviour is somewhat odd.


Maybe look into this on a low priority? Thanks!

@eightohnine Alfred won't allow multiple instances to be launched, but certain workflows might manually launch the Alfred application.


As such, the best place to start is to take a look at the workflows you're using which include scripts that could be launching Alfred. 


Let me know how you get on :)
