The new Stocks app in macOS Mojave keeps on closing by itself.

The app closes, not crashes. It happens randomly.

Any way to fix this?

  • Does the app close when you choose a specific option? Does it close when idle? Are you using macOS or iOS on what version? Does it close or crash? Can you add relevant lines from the console and/or provide a crash log?

  • Latest macOS, it closes, not crashes. Happens randomly. Why the down vote. Mar 28, 2019 at 10:15
  • You said, "Latest macOS"; however, with the lack of other information to even begin to diagnose the issue it might be better if you actually said which version number too, e.g 10.14.4. Mar 28, 2019 at 12:55
  • Please add your "update" as an answer and select it as the solution because editing the question as you did, doesn't mark this as "solved."

You can try to cleanup/remove preferences etc.

  • Quit Stocks (in case it's still running)
  • wait a few seconds
  • Open Terminal
  • Run the following by copy/pasting it into Terminal and pressing Enter

    rm -r ~/Library/{Group\ ,}Containers/com.apple.stocks
    rm -r ~/Library/Saved\ Application\ State/com.apple.stocks.savedState
  • Run Stocks again

PS: You might get an error ...Library/Group Containers/com.apple.stocks: No such file or directory which you can ignore (don't have the file on my Mac, but Stocks tries to access it).

  • aww will i lose all my watchlist? Mar 29, 2019 at 14:22
  • @SuperUberDuper Assuming it‘s stored in one of these files, yes. You could try to just delete the last file (saved state) and check whether this already solves the problem. You shouldn’t loose your watchlist in this case.
