READ FIRST: Posting a helpful bug report


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the bug report forum. You're likely here because you've experienced behaviour in Alfred that feels unexpected.


Please ensure you're always using the latest build before reporting an issue, as Andrew works so fast, he might've already fixed the issue and released a new build! In Alfred's Update tab, you can choose "Pre-releases" and grab the latest pre-release. 


Next, please check the forum for possible solutions to your issue:

  • Use the search as questions and answers may have been posted elsewhere on the forum
  • Check existing bug report threads before creating one as it may already be a known issue


If the issue you're seeing hasn't been reported, please post one thread per bug report with the following information:
  • What you were doing when the issue happened
  • Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action (Update any third-party apps and restart your Mac if relevant)
  • Include any screenshots that might help us
  • Include the Alfred version & build number you are using
  • Include your macOS version
  • Include the version number of any third-party apps relevant to your issue


The clearer the bug report, the more likely and easily we'll be able to fix it! :) We may ask you to email your Diagnostics file, which you can get by typing "?diagnostics" into Alfred.


Once you've reported it, we will test your bug report and, if valid, Andrew will aim to fix it in the upcoming builds. Once fixed, the thread you started will be closed, confirming we have all the information we need to fix it.


For those curious about the additional notes in square brackets you might see, we may add these status updates after responding:

  • Accepted: Bug has been moved to our bug tracker and will be looked into soon.
  • Fixed: Bug has been resolved, so check for the latest build if you still encounter this issue.
  • Resolved: Issues that are not bugs but required an explanation/info.
  • Noted: If we're unable to make changes, we'll make a note for future reference and report it to Apple (e.g. macOS bugs)
  • Not a bug: Invalid reports or issues that are not bugs. 


Please don't post feature requests in this forum as they'll be moved to the Feature Suggestions forum. :)
