File selection window automatically closing when opened from any menu

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:22991

Description

Mac OSX El Capitan Version 10.11.5 here with QGis 2.12.1 Lyon.

This happens randomly, not sure what causes it, but at some point when trying to open the file selector menu for the following purposes (I'm certain there are more)...
- georeferencer selecting image
- opening vector file from within program
- selecting file for debugger output (sorry, no debugger output available now...)
...the file selection window pops up for an instant but closes immediately. Only remedy is to quit and restart the program.

Does not happen when right clicking on a layer and trying to save it, so that may help with isolating the problem.

End of life notice: QGIS 2.18 LTR

Source:

QGIS 3.4 has recently become our new Long Term Release (LTR) version. This is a major step in our history – a long term release version based on the massive updates, library upgrades and improvements that we carried out in the course of the 2.x to 3x upgrade cycle.

We strongly encourage all users who are currently using QGIS 2.18 LTR as their preferred QGIS release to migrate to QGIS 3.4. This new LTR version will receive regular bugfixes for at least one year. It also includes hundreds of new functions, usability improvements, bugfixes, and other goodies. See the relevant changelogs for a good sampling of all the new features that have gone into version 3.4

Most plugins have been either migrated or incorporated into the core QGIS code base.

We strongly discourage the continued use of QGIS 2.18 LTR as it is now officially unsupported, which means we’ll not provide any bug fix releases for it.

You should also note that we intend to close all bug tickets referring to the now obsolete LTR version. Original reporters will receive a notification of the ticket closure and are encouraged to check whether the issue persists in the new LTR, in which case they should reopen the ticket.

If you would like to better understand the QGIS release roadmap, check out our roadmap page! It outlines the schedule for upcoming releases and will help you plan your deployment of QGIS into an operational environment.

The development of QGIS 3.4 LTR has been made possible by the work of hundreds of volunteers, by the investments of companies, professionals, and administrations, and by continuous donations and financial support from many of you. We sincerely thank you all and encourage you to collaborate and support the project even more, for the long term improvement and sustainability of the QGIS project.
