Thanks for the speedy reply - I'll try that.
(I did try searching, and have done it again to see what happened: I typed "lightroom won't quit" and hit enter... which brought up the new thread page! I assumed there were no results...)
Yes, thank you - I see them now too! But I had hit enter straight away, taking me to the new thread page, missing the results!
I'll try rolling back.
You can also try to just disable parts of the new import:
- Go to Lightroom > Preferences.
- Click on the General tab
- Uncheck “Show ‘Add Photos’ Screen”Restart Lightroom
- Restart Lightroom and see if it works.
On some systems, this seems to help.

Yeah, that's a common problem with the mediocre forum software that Adobe licensed.
This worked for me!
Finally fixed this issue after hours of troubleshooting... for those having hang on exit issues try this:
Right click on your LR icon and choose "OPTIONS" "Show in finder"
A finder window will open and you will see "Adobe Lightroom" application.
Highlight it and right click and pick "Get Info"
in the box that appears, click on the padlock in the bottom right corner or box.
Then click the "+" sign and under users and groups pick your account name and it will be added under "Sharing and Permissions"
Click the arrow to the right of your user name and choose "Read and Write"
(I also changed the user "Everyone" from "read" to "read/write" but this may not be necessary)
Click the gear icon below and choose "make me the owner"
close this window and now try opening and closing lightroom, it should now exit properly.
