Short description of error

Help Menu freezes App

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on a (as simple as possible) attached .blend file with minimum amount of steps

When I select items in the help menu Blender freezes and I have to force quit the App.
I tried the Manual link first. Then the web site link. It froze both times.



Hi, please check a daily build from
or the first test build for 2.79
if the error still happen.

Cheers, mib

Probably some issue with opening URLs for some reasons… anyway, since it now works, we can close, thanks for the report. :)
