    Since updating to 10.14.3, it seems that Messages freezes for 10 seconds after starting. I barely have many messages so having a ton of pics or vids or messages would likely not be the cause. Any ideas? Thanks.

    You are not alone. Messages.app freezes a few seconds here as well. Didn't happen before the update to 10.14.3. Pixelmator Pro also freezes. Opening a few photos for editing sends the system to a peculiar state. After a while everything resumes to normal.

    EDIT: Reinstalled from scratch on an empty disk (Mac mini 2018). Also tried to reset SMC/PRAM. Same behaviour as before.

    Having the same exact issue after updating my 2018 MBP to 10.14.3. Hopefully they can fix this issue with the next update because it's very annoying!

    Hi all,

    I have observed this with a few applications and have narrowed it down to using the Intel graphics 630 chipset on my 2018 MacBook Pro. When I switch to the Radeon card the problem stops. The Intel drivers were updated in 10.14.3 and I have been able to take the 10.14.3 drivers and place them on a 10.14.2 installation and the problem starts there. I also took the 10.14.2 Intel graphics drivers and placed on 10.14.3 and the problem went away. I am actively involved with Apple in a case looking at this. I could not reproduce this on any of my other 4 macs but they all utilize different chipsets.

    Curious the graphics chipset in use by others when they see these pauses?

    Regards,
    Carlin Smith

    Agree. Have it occurring on a 2016 MBP, 2017 MacBook, and the 2018 MacBook Air. All 10.13.4.

    I thought it was ms office and reinstalled the OS on all machines. It’s annoyingAF.

    I’m not sure why this isn’t getting more traction. It seems like it’s happening to every apple computer out there.

    Came here to report the same annoying bug. Mac Mini 2018, 10.14.3
    I also see this bug when opening MS Excel (365) and dragging/resizing the window around, screen will totally freeze in the same way.

    Carlin: any updates from Apple's end on your case? If you don't mind, please share your bug id# here so I can reference it, as I plan to file my own bugreport as well to help move this along. Also, when you said you took the gfx driver from 10.14.2 and merged it into 10.14.3 - what driver file specifically? Was it "/System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelKBLGraphics.kext"? thanks
