    1. Do you by any chance have 2 screen monitors and are running FrostWire on the secondary screen?

      If not, please send us a full crash log if possible, you can obtain one by running FrostWire from the Terminal

      cd /Applications/FrostWire.app/Content/MacOS
      ./FrostWire

      When the app crashes, copy & paste all the output from the terminal window into a comment here please
