My macOS 10.12 has a strange phenomena since 3 days:

  • Everything on the screen is not responding with my mouse: 3 buttons control of windows don't show its icons on mouse hover, any element in the windows is not responding with mouse hover.
  • Middle mouse is not working anymore: cannot close browser tabs or open link in new tab.
  • Mission control is accessible, however, cannot switch space.
  • Dock icons are not moving on mouse move.
  • The mouse doesn't change its form when moving to other windows or another monitor, it sticks on its form to the last focused window.

The phenomena is gone as long as I log out and re log in. That takes me 1-2min, not as much but I don't want to lose all my work spaces, nor to restart my docker containers, etc. everytime. On Windows, I think we have to restart the explorer process to refresh the GUI.

What I've had before the bug occurs:

  • Skype
  • Firefox (~10-20 opened tabs)
  • Sublime Text
  • iTerm2
  • VirtualBox with a 1GB RAM running docker-machine.
  • Telegram
  • Docker: 4 containers.

All my applications are up-to-date. Thanks in advance.

What my log showed at the moment that the bug occurs.

Try running killall Finder in the terminal as a workaround.

If the problem persists you might wanna look inside /var/log/system.log for suspicious entries around that time.

Maybe you're lucky and an OS update will "solve" this issue.

  • killall Finder didn't solve the problem. I just updated my log. Mar 22 '17 at 8:47
