I've got an issue with my new MacBook Pro 15″ (bought it two weeks ago).

Some icons are missing from the Dock:

The first one is Terminal, and the second one is Todoist

If I close and reopen the application it fixes the issue, but it reappears quite often.

Do you know what could be wrong with my Mac?

Here are the specs:

  • What have you tried? Control click and keep in dock. Or drag to new location on the dock when the app is running.

  • Thanks for your reply. I will try it when the bug will happen again. Just temporarily fixed it with the command "killall dock"

  • @bjbk You are right, when I move the app the icon is back. Do you have any fix for that? (even if your answer is a temporary fix)

1 Answer 1


Current best answer to my problem thanks to bjbk's comment:

Moving an app to a new location within the dock fixes the issue temporarily.

  • The issue is the opened app permanently belongs to the dock if you move it.
