buggy profile results in two instances starting

Ever since I did the first upgrade between 3.x versions, I've had to kill the QGIS instance that starts, as it hangs on the splash screen. After doing that, a valid session completes startup and I can continue.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but that made no difference. Then I tried creating a new profile and opening into that profile and that solves the problem. It's good that only one instance starts now but I lose out on my whole working environment from my default profile.

Is there a way to fix the problem and keep my profile?

  • Operating System changed from OSX to macOS
  • Status changed from Open to Feedback

Have you tried if you have the same problems (around the macOS release) if you use the lutraconsulting installer instead?

Can you clarify which "profile" you mean? It sounds like you may be talking about your user profile in the operating system.
If so, you probably need to look at clearing out the QGIS profile instead.

I haven't tried the Lutra installer yet.

I am talking about QGIS profile, not the OS profile.
