Tested against

  • GNU Emacs 26.3 with ivy 0.13.0 from
  • GNU Emacs 26.3 with ivy 20191030.1538 from

Steps to reproduce

  1. Set up fresh Emacs config (Perhaps: docker run -ti --rm silex/emacs)
  2. M-x package-install RET ivy RET
  3. C-x C-f /tmp/dummy.txt
  4. Type, (note spelling) move point back onto that text.
  5. Ensure C-x C-f and C-x d both work without ivy enabled.
  6. M-x ivy-mode RET
  7. Notice how C-x C-f and C-x d will hang

Possible workaround

Set ffap-machine-known-p to 'reject.


It appears ivy will try to complete based off point, which means it will also try to complete machine names (hostnames) by default.
