      Description

      Workarounds

      Close down Minecraft before interacting with the launcher, or go to settings and enable "Keep Launcher open while games are running"

      I am unable to fill out the login form in the Minecraft Launcher if the game is already running. So whenever I need a second account for development and the launcher forgot my session (which happens quite often, very annoying) I need to quit the running game.

      If I click in one of the input fields it seems as it got selected (white border + blinking cursor) but whatever I type will get typed in the last selected window. For example if I have typed something in the game and then go to the Launcher the letters appear ingame in chat. This happens to other windows like Safari, too. If the last focused window has no active input field a macOS error sound is played.

      Nevertheless pasting contents into the input with right click -> paste works. CMD + V results in the same behavior described above.

       

      I have tested this with two different devices with both macOS Catalina and Big Sur
