Native Figma app on MacOS locked at 60fps

Hello everyone!

So I just got my 144hz monitor to work with the new MacBook Pro 13 M1, and noticed that the native Figma app is locked / capped at 60 frames.

BUT, when opening Figma in Google Chrome, and viewing the same design project, I have full 144 fps unlocked?

Any ideas how to “unlock” the frames for the native desktop app?


Since this is a technical issue it likely needs the attention of the Figma team, you can reach out to them via or the support request form. Also check out the list of Chromium flags, maybe you can launch Figma with some flag that enables that: Chrome/Chromium startup flags

@Gleb How do you run Figma with flags? from Terminal?

Yep, I’m pretty sure it would be roughly the same as Chromium.
