How do I close crash catcher after upgrading?

I upgraded from Mac 2016 to Mac 2019. crash catcher was open when I upgraded and I could not close the crash catcher. upgrade went fine and new version works fine and update this morning fixed Mohave payment problem. But cannot close the crash catcher. It will not force close. Anyone have any ideas what I can do to fix this?


Welcome to the Intuit Community, scott.

I'm here to make sure you'll be able to get rid of the Crash catcher prompt.

Since you're unable to get rid of the prompt through force closing, we'll need to restart your computer. This will allow the Mac system to refresh the newly upgraded QuickBooks app.

If the problem continues, please give us a call. Our Phone Support Team will be able to further assist you with this issue. Please reach them through these steps:

  1. Go to:
  2. Click QuickBooks Mac Desktop.
  3. Select a topic.
  4. Scroll-down and click the Get Phone Number button.

If you need more help concerning the Crash catcher error, feel free to leave a comment below. I'll be here to help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
