"Launch Alfred at login" greyed out with spinner next to it

I'm on version 4.3.4 (but saw this with the previous version). In General Preferences, the "Launch Alfred at login option" is checked, but greyed out. There is a never-ending spinner to the left of the word "Startup", and I have to manually start Alfred after a restart.

@Sam McMillan Could you open your macOS System Preferences > Users & Groups > unlock to make changes then look at your Login Items. Remove Alfred from the list, then relaunch and re-check the launch at login box.


I haven't heard of this issue from anyone else, so let me know how you get on :)

That fixed it. There were two entries in the Login items list - Alfred Preferences and Alfred 4. I took both out, did a reboot, manually started Alfred and the General Preferences Startup option is all good.
