Description Ariel Constenla-Haile 2016-10-06 11:56:20 UTC
- with your browser, download any extension from the extension site
- launch
- in the Start Center press the Open button and browse to the directory where the extension was saved (by default, Downloads on your home directory)
- the Extension Manager dialog opens, at the bottom it says "Adding <name of the extension .OXT file>"

Bug: the Extension Manager seems to hang, it is impossible to close it

Expected behavior: there should be an OK/Cancel dialog to proceed with the installation of the extension or cancel it

Reproducible on Mac OS X El Capitan and macOS Sierra with 4.1.2

Another scenario: checking from updates hangs the Extension Manager

- make sure you have at least one extension installed; if you can't install extensions in the user interface due to the bug described in Description, you can download an OXT from the extensions site and place it inside <path to>/

- launch

- Open menu Tools - Extensions Manager

- on the Extensions Manager, press the Check for Updates... button.

- the Extensions Manager hangs, it can't be closed, you have to force quit the application

This problem is apparently still present in 4.1.6 on macOS High Sierra.
I think the severity of this should be bumped up a bit.
