Just upgraded a 2017 Macbook Pro Retina to Mojave and already regretting it. I have the following two issues that are quite annoying.

1) I select a persons name down arrow at top of Messages thread, then from the drop down to select Facetime Audio, Video, iphone call etc . This works initially, then the drop down menu stops appearing after some period of time and I cant make a call from Messages. I have to restart Messages to get this drop down to appear again. Which then leads to the second issue to occur.

2) Facetime Audio Calls -- I initiate a Facetime Audio call, it weirdly opens Facetime Video briefly then switches to the Facetime Audio window, audio rings one time, then immediately the call fails.

3) Facetime Audio Window cant move (its in a fixed position on the screen). This has been a bug since High Sierra.

Anyone else have these issues?

No one else has this issue?
Can't say that I've had or noticed any of those issues. The developer agreement is an odd one. I've not had any issues with submitting. I have a '17 MBP TB but I began with a new installation of Mojave 10.14 when I purchased it. No issues you've mentioned since upgrading to the latest 10.14.3. My biggest complaint which has existed in the past few major versions of the OS have always dealt with FileVault. Each time on three different MBP and multiple clean installs of OS, if I have FV enabled, then an issue with kernel_task, CPU erratic high usage, fans running at full speed on the login screen, certain Apple apps which rely on hand-off being intermittent, VMs lag, etc. will crop up. Disabling FV has been the solution each time. So, I would suggest to start with disabling FV and logging out of iCloud for all services. Run a repair when you boot up in Safe Mode, Single User, etc. and try logging back into iCloud services afterwards. This will take some time. I really don't care for the arguments to support needing FV or people chiming in with "it never has given me problems" because from my experience with my devices and those I've had to repair of many others; FV is more trouble than one's worth in "needing" it. Sorry, for hijacking your thread with that rant.
