Here are some things that might help with Freezes some users are reporting until we find the root cause, or when Apple finally releases 11.0.2 fixing a lot of irregularities we’ve experienced with this operating system.
For some reason, on some installations of macOS Big Sur FrostWire can freeze when trying to show the “Tip of the Day” window.
To avoid that window from showing on startup, all you have to do is add a setting in the frostwire.props file
Please try the following before you launch the application:
1. Make sure you’re running our latest FrostWire update
2. With the Text Editor app of your choice please edit the file ~/Library/Preferences/FrostWire5/frostwire.props
and add the line
This has helped some people get past a the freeze when the “Tip of The Day” window is shown on macOS Big Sur.
Update: If this doesn’t help you solve the freeze, please know that we’re finding the root cause of the freeze, we’re upgrading all of our third party libraries and trying to debug what could be the root cause of the problem. In the meantime please make sure you have our latest build
