The messenger Figma crushed and does not open

My Figma crushed and does not open…
I tried to turn off and on the computer.
I tried to delete and install Figma.
I tried to do “Restore from version”…
nothing helps. I need help.
What can I do?


Hello @Shaked_Mark

Could you give us a bit more information on the problem: What happen when you try to launch the application? Is there a black screen? is the application launching and crashing right after?

In the meantime, some actions work for other people experimenting the same problem as yours:

  1. Make sur your comptuer is up to date, if not update it and try to open figma again
  2. If your computer has a graphic card, verify if the latest drivers are installed

Let me know if it helps


Hi @Haroll Thanks!
Well, today when I opened the Figma it opened foe 3 seconds and closed immediately.
Then, I tried to open it and close all the windows quickly, before closing again…
When I closed all the windows and stood on the “home” icon - the software work. When I click on file (any file) the Figma closes immediately and crashes…

Have you tried to update your operating system / graphic card driver (only on windows)?

Yes, when I opened the Figma - a window popped up asking if I wanted to do update and I did… and since then the software is crashing (I tried deleting and reinstalling as well ( I tried deleting and reinstalling and also “restore from version”)

Still not working… :frowning:

After the new update figma mac app is not working. Whenever I opened a new file it closes the entire app.

I found that When I log in with my secondary account the mac app works fine and loads the files. but when I’m using my primary account it closes the entire app when opening a file. So I uninstalled all the plugins, but it won’t solve the issue. The strange thing is I can use my primary account on Browser and it’s working without any issues.


Thanks @jithinio
Yes, that’s exactly what happened to me.
I use Figma through the browser… it is not so comfortable…
Sounds like there is no solution to the problem (?)


I also waiting for new update May that will fix the issue. Did you check on another device ? Using same account.

Yes, the thing I do not understand - in my computer the same Figma account works normal.

Exactly, only works on browsers alone… app closing down when you open a file but works fine for prototype screen only

Opting for the browser now while this is fixed

I’ve got the same problem. Figma works fine in the browser but when i start the app (OSX 12.3.1) and try to open a project it crashes immediately. Hopefully they will fix it soon.

Hi everyone,

If you keep experiencing what seems to be a bug you can try Figma Beta App version (link below). That’s where bug fixed are tested before release. Maybe the already got one for you

trying this out

Thanks @Haroll, but it still crashes for me too…

not working

same thing

same thing

I can only view the home screen

I’ve got the exact same problem, starting this morning, with one of my Figma accounts.

  • Opening any file i Desktop Figma crashed to whole app.
  • Opening a prototype in Desktop Figma works.
  • Browser Figma works like normal.

I solved it this way:

  • Inviting my other figma account in the browser to the file.
  • Switching to this account on Desktop.
    Tadaaa! :fire:
