Mac Menu Bar icon locks up - no dropdown menu, won't quit


ToDoist on my Mac shows up in the menu bar, but after the first or second time I click on it, it no longer shows the dropdown menu, but turns blue and locks up. The only way to close it is to go into the Activity Monitor and turn it off. It stops the computer from sleeping or shutting down because it just hangs.

I'm sending the screen shots, but right now it just sits there, black in the menu bar, and does nothing.

Thanks for the email. Can you tell me which version of OSX you are running. Also, please try clearing the cache for Safari (our app uses this to work) and let me know if it continues.

Fixed now with the new version of Todoist.
