Bisq v1.2.6 fails to start on macOS Mojave #3969
Steps to reproduce
Run the release build macOS executable on macOS Mojave (10.14.6 in my case)
App should start up as per usual without errors.
App freezes up at what appears to be the point the password prompt would show up. It behaves as if a modal popup (such as the password prompt) were present, but no such popup is visible. The UI becomes unresponsive to any click and system error bells are sounded on every attempt.
Notice the fuzzed-out background, again, as if a modal popup or dialog were in the foreground.
Device or machine
macOS 10.14.6 (18G103)
We've verified that the change that caused this problem is PR #3883. It is unknown as to why exactly this change causes this problem, and why it causes it only on Mojave (Catalina is fine, and High Sierra is fine). @ripcurlx is preparing a v1.2.7 hotfix with this change reverted as we speak.
Note that at least two other users reported this issue as well:
