Can't open the Webstorm after installation on Big Sur. Version Webstorm 2021.1.

I was running version 20.3. Suddenly it stopped opening. I downloaded and reinstalled Webstorm for version 2021.1.

And even after these manipulations, the application also does not start.

Mac OS Big Sur version 11.2.3

please share your idea.log (~/Library/Logs/JetBrains/WebStorm2021.1)

Also, what is a result of starting the IDE from terminal (browse to the /Applications/Webstorm.app/Contents/MacOS/webstorm executable in Finder, in the context menu choose Open With, Terminal)? What is written to console?

I have the same problem with Big Sur. Both Webstorm and Rubymine just beachball after the logo appears. I had to downgrade back to 2020.3 to get my IDE to work.

Looks like https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-266474.

You can add -Dnosplash=true in Help | Edit Custom VM Options as a workaround or nosplash to the command line.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks, Elena. That works for me. Looks like the issue was fixed based on the conversations in the other thread. Any idea when it will be released to the general public?
