#18150 new defect

Extremely sluggish mouse movement on macOS

Reported by: xfbs Owned by:

Dear fellow developers!

I've been a long-time user of VirtualBox and I've come to appreciate it for it's stable set of features and the fact that it is cross-platform and thus available anywhere. However, with the latest couple of versions, I've run into some real issues. The visual performance is severely degraded. Also, every time I shut down a virtual machine, VirtualBox crashes. I've done a screen recording: on an example VM running AndroidX86, but I've also observed this on other Linux VMs.

I first noticed this a few months ago when I got a new machine (MacBook Pro 13" 2017). I initially assumed it was just a bug from a rushed release, but after a couple new releases nothing has changed and unfortunately, VirtualBox is not really usable like this for me.

Could you please look into it? I'm happy to run any kind of diagnostics or try stuff out.

Greetings, xfbs

It's usually better and faster, if issues get first addressed in the VirtualBox forums, a lot more eyes there. More than 95% of the issues are resolved over there, which keeps the developers focusing on the bug fixes and enhancements, and there is no need for another ticket to keep track of. For example, yours is most probably not a bug and someone from the developers has to deal with it and close it as "Invalid".

So, if you can, please open a new thread in the VirtualBox on Mac OS X Hosts section of the forums. Please be sure to mention that you came from the bug tracker and include the ticket number.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
