Cursor update has caused it to repeatedly freeze

This never happened before. I just updated. I genuinely can’t go 3 minutes without Cursor freezing for 5 seconds. In that time, I can’t type, change tabs, click anything. It’s completely unresponsive.

When I start typing, the IDE just freezes periodically. I had to revert to my old Cursor Nightly build just to keep working normally.

This looks really bad and super weird. Any chance (a) you can get us a profile via the chrome performance tools (Analyze runtime performance  |  DevTools  |  Chrome for Developers) or (b) get us the logs from Output > MainWindow/Extension host/terminal/pty host. That would be super helpful to debug and fix this asap!

you can email and hopefully we can resolve this today!

I am getting this too, It is making Cursor pretty much unusable. IT freezes for minutes at a time and I often have to close and reopen the browser

oh no. we would really really appreciate the logs here. that would allow us to fix these issues as fast as they come. we would love to get either a performance profile here (using chrome dev tools.) or the logs. either would help us figure out what is hanging for you all.
