Alfred Preferences Won't Finish Launching

Recommended Posts

1. Bring up Alfred with the hotkey

2. Type "alf", see "Show Alfred Preferences" is the default

3. Press Return key.


Result: Alfred icon eternally bounces in the dock (OK, I wanted about a minute). Only option is to force quite it by right clicking on the icon and selecting "Force Quit"


Same results if I attempt to launch it by selecting "Preferences..." from the Alfred menu. Both methods tested multiple times.




Selecting "Check for Updates..." from the Alfred menu launches the app within a second, and navigating to the various sections and subsections works fine.


MacBook Pro 15" Touch Bar 2016, macOS 10.15.2, Alfred 4.0.8.

@Chivalry This sounds highly unusual, so two things come to mind:

  • First, restart your Mac because well, it's Catalina.
  • Second, when this next occurs, please launch Activity Monitor, select Alfred Preferences and do a "Sample Process".

This will help establish what might be going on.
