[solved] Pinegrow window does not close

When I either click on File/Quit or “X” to close the window Pinegrow shows the message but does not close - the window keeps being open. I run it on Linux (Fedora) x86_64 workstation.

Update: I forgot to mention the version: About Pinegrow Web Editor - 7.9 - PRO Personal

Is it the first time you install Pinegrow on this system?
Can you please start the app from the console and check for the possible error messages? (see Install Pinegrow on Linux | Pinegrow Web Editor)

Then, can you please contact the support?

I started it from the Command Line (MacOS) and got;

It does not close but seems to be stopping the internal web browser as I can no longer open pages to edit them/

PS: 2023-12-22: Now working fine on MacOS, many thanks


I add more characters so its fine with the forum.

I have the same problem on Windows 11 with Pinegrow 7.9. When closing it by pressing X or by File/Quit the message about “shutting down see you soon” comes up but the window remains open and active. I have to go to Task Manager and end the process.

I’m also seeing the same issue on my Windows PC.

@Russ @zahidaziz @adamslowe We asked the Christmas elves to magically fix things, and if you restart Pinegrow now, the problem should be resolved.

Apologies for this temporary hiccup. The elves might have been playing with the code while sipping hot cocoa! :santa:


One too many eggnogs. Thanks for taking care of it so quickly!
