My OS is Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, and I'm using the IntelliJ 10.5.2, the latest version by now.

After IntelliJ opened, the menu on the top of screen does not give me any response when clicking it. Is anyone meet the similar problem like this? Is the problem caused by JRE or Lion?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I'm not sure this is the right place for this. The IntelliJ Devnet Community would be more appropriate. – OverZealous Sep 22 '11 at 9:27

Does it help if you disable the screen menu bar for IntelliJ IDEA by editing Info.plist file in its .app Contents directory?


If the application still hangs, please contact JetBrains support with a thread dump.

Thanks, this method solved my problem – Roger Dec 3 '11 at 9:57

What JDK are you using ? I have no issue with a similar environment, please try to wipe your IDEA settings (in ~/Library)
