Version 7.8.5 - locks up and safari/menu bar not responding

in Mac

Anyone else seeing issues with 1Password 7.8.5 for MacOS (version 11.4 Intel)?

It upgraded this morning, and so far, the main app has locked up twice, requiring a forced quit. And randomly, the menu bar or safari 1Password icons won't work.

Did anyone find a fix? I've rebooted, turned the extension on and off, etc.?

1Password Version: 7.8.5
Extension Version: 7.8.5
OS Version: MacOS 11.4 Intel
Sync Type: iCloud

    I haven't seen the main app lock up but can't get the Safari extension or 1Password Mini to work ever since the 7.8.5 update. I had trouble installing the update too. It was stuck on Validating forever and eventually I had to quit it. However, when I reopened 1Password the app seemed to have been updated.

    I've had the same experience as @ajaym after recent updates, including 7.8.5 yesterday. Clicking on 1Password's Safari extension doesn't actually activate 1Password. Nothing happens, in fact. I've tried deactivating the extension, then quitting and relaunching both 1P and Safari and then reactivating the 1P extension. That doesn't work. The only thing that seems to work is to reboot the Mac, which is inconvenient for sure. I hope the team can address this!

  • I'm also experiencing the non-responsive button issues in Safari after updates. The only thing that seems to fix it is a reboot, which is super inconvenient!

  • @tdehnke @khoi @levjoy12 I found a workaround that has been successful so far and prevents the need to reboot.

    1. Option-click (right-click) 1Password mini in the menu bar and select Quit 1Password Completely
    2. Quit all browsers
    3. After a few seconds launch the main 1Password app

    I hope this works for you guys🤞🏼

    @ajaym That does seem to do the trick, thanks for sharing!

    @ag_tommy Is this something that the team will be addressing in an update soon?

    I don't know the timelines unfortunately, so at the moment I can recommend keeping an eye out on the release notes to see all the updates. Here is the web changelog, in case you miss some update notification in the future and would like to check.

    1Password 7.8.5 for MacOS (version 11.4 Intel) completely SCREWED me over!! A huge number of items (logins, documents, notes, etc) ended up in the "Archive" folder for no reason, It took me two hours to recover most of them but I don't think I'm still done!!!!!!! I'M VERY ANGRY!!
