Window freezes when clicking off modal

I’m using PHPStorm on my laptop and whenever I accidentally click of a modal without clicking the cancel button or submit, the dialog disappears. At this point the modal is still blocking the UI but I can’t do anything to get access back to the window.

I tried reaching out to Jetbrains but they think its something to do with the Window Manager

Operating System: Manjaro Linux
KDE Plasma Version: 5.22.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.86.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2
Kernel Version: 5.13.19-2-MANJARO (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: X11
Processors: 12 × AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 4650U with Radeon Graphics
Memory: 30.6 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: AMD RENOIR

That’s definitely a bug. Please have a look here:

and provide the developer with all the information we require to debug system problems.

As a workaround, try Alt+Tabbing into the modal window when it disappears. If even that doesn’t work, the only thing we can tell you is: reopen the bug and provide detailed and relevant system / application logs.

Relevant is the key here: don’t provide your entire boot log of the last month…


Thanks Fabby, I’ll get some more information to the PHPStorm developers.

Alt+Tab didn’t work either. I’ll report back here when it eventually gets resolved.
