When lots of application running, emacs doesn't start. Icon appears on dock but application doesn't show up. If I quit some apps and retry to start emacs, it works flawlessly.

Is the any chance to avoid this problem except quitting other apps?

I use standard emacs 25.0.50.

  • I've often seen this behavior on earlier Emacs versions, like 24.4, as well. I recently bought more RAM, and I believe the problem is less frequent now. I would suggest that you report this as a bug to the maintainers of Emacs. – Lindydancer Sep 10 '15 at 11:00
  • It is my understanding that 25.0.50 is experimental, not standard. The current stable public release is 24.5: emacsformacosx.com – lawlist Sep 10 '15 at 14:18
