Today for the first time I have this issue where any app showing a file browser (load/save) dialog box hangs indefinitely until I kill it.

The Finder works just fine however. I can browse everything, iCloud and network locations included, there. I haven't found a common point in the traces where the apps hang, so I'm not sure what might be the cause.

Here's the relevant sample from TeXShop when I tried to save a document (before that I had to kill VLC twice after accidentally hitting Cmd-O; opening a video in a different way was no problem though. At that point I thought it might just be a VLC bug, but I've now discovered it's system-wide)

Any ideas?


It disappeared after restarting, but of course that doesn't mean it won't return…

  • I have the exact same issue on 10.11.6. It usually appears from time to time every few weeks and only a reboot solves it. Strange thing. – thonixx Oct 13 '16 at 7:10

What version of Yosemite? Am finding installing the Betas clear up these problems that are so hard to trace.

  • it's 10.10.2 14C1514, the current released version – pascal Apr 4 '15 at 16:37
  • The usual diagnostics done? Do you own Disk Warrior? An SMC reset for your machine, a startup from the Recovery Disk (partition) & run Disk Utility from there ... but I repeat, often a reinstall solves. – Zo219 Apr 10 '15 at 0:45
  • The problem is that it didn't even appear again after a reboot… so I wouldn't be able to tell if any more drastic method would fix the root cause. Updated 10.10.3 now, I'll just have to wait and see if it appears again I guess. – pascal Apr 10 '15 at 16:23
