Notebook was working fine. Then suddenly, it stopped working and nothing I try helps. You can type or copy and paste into the cell, but it remains as a box only one line high. Cell doesn't have heavy blue line around it; there is no "evaluate" button and shift-return doesn't run it. I tried killing Sagemath from the terminal by killing the PID, and restarting from the terminal; I tried clearing the Firefox cache; repairing disk permissions; restarting mac. Nothing works !!! HELP please !!!

You need to provide more information about your setup if you want someone to reproduce it

  • which version of Sage did you use ?
  • which OS ?
  • did you install Sage from the binaries, and which ones ?
  • did you compile Sage yourself ?
  • which notebook did you use (Sage notebook or jupyter notebook) ?
  • which commands did you type precisely to get the error ?
  • which error message did you get ?
  • ... ?

In answer to the comment: I have SAGE 7.2 installed on my mac with OSX 10.10.5. It opens in the Firefox browser. To install it I downloaded the Mac OSX binaries fior which it says Download Mac OS X binaries "These binaries are only for OS X 10.4 - 10.10. " from this page:

I am using the Sage notebook. There is no error message- it just doesn't work anymore, as described above. The "Discard and Quit" and Delete" buttons also don't work. If I open a file, it is marked (running) but Stpo doesn't stop it. To stop it, I can logout, then I start sage from terminal, kill the old PID, type notebook() and I see all the files, none are running.
