Vaadin Design Repeatedly Hangs Eclipse

Getting a bit tired of this…Vaadin 8 Designer, latest version of Eclipse. Designer either cannot load the design (browser security warning) or hangs Eclipse when you close designer window. Please advise on solutions.

Hello Tom,

You can try to use JxBrowser instead of the default embedded browser.

Select menu WindowPreferences. After that type “Vaadin” in the dialog search field and you will see Vaadin Designer preference page. Tick the checkbox “Use JxBrowser” and press “Apply and Close”.

Thanks, that seems to be much better. Maybe this should be the default setting?
