Can't remove an app from Station's dock / sidebar (Fun Confluence, YC Bookface, Fastly Jira, etc.)

(Renato Lombardero) #1

My station app has a lot of “fun confluence” apps on the list. Opened the first accidentally and could never remove.

I open the cog and click the remove button, but it does not work.
New instance button works (that’s why I have multiple instances).


Here’s the detailed report

  • Trigger: Try to close app
  • Issue: Can’t close
  • station
  • OS version: OSX Sierra
  • Station version: 1.10.0

@Georges could you take a look at that?


(Jp RobotShop) #5

@Alexandre maybe? this is very annoying :frowning:

I’m having the same issue with the same ‘Fun Confluence’ instances… I have two of them. Currently running Station 1.11.2

@Alexandre @Georges @staff : any updates on this? this is particularly annoying.

Hey @jprobotshop, @KyleJohnston

Thanks for reporting this bug and sorry for the late answer :pray:
“Resetting” your Station should do the job: https://faq.getstation.com/bugs-and-glitches/how-can-i-get-a-fresh-start-on-my-station

Try that and tell me how it goes :slight_smile:

Will try, but it sucks to have to spend the time to readd all the apps.

In terms of UX/product this should be improved. Cause if it takes someone more time to delete a folder and reconfigure everything than it takes to uninstall completely station, one might feel enticed to do so.

UPDATE : wasn’t that bad. Station found many of the apps I was already using.

I am unable to remove the bookface application.

Here’s the detailed report

  • Trigger: Clicking “remove application”

  • Issue: I am unable to remove the bookface application. Here is a video of me trying to do it. I’m able to remove other applications, but nothing happens when I click this. I’ve tried restarting Station, I’m running the latest version.

  • OS version: latest Mac

  • Station version: 1.13.1

The issue I’m facing is:

When I click “Remove application” for the YC extension, nothing happens. It works on other extensions. I’ve tried restarting Station.


Here’s the detailed report

  • Trigger: Click YC circle --> options cog --> “Remove application”
  • Issue: nothing happens
  • Explanatory gifs/pictures (we really need that :pray: ):
  • OS version: 10.13.4
  • Station version: 1.13.1

Now that you let me disable applications completely, I managed to work around this.

I completely reset my Station setup. Then I clicked a link to Bookface, it opened it but I clicked “no, open this in normal web browser” and it removed it.

So now, even though I can’t remove Bookface once it’s added, I can prevent it from getting added in the first place.


(Jeremy Evans) #16

Any updates on this? I can’t seem to disable Bookface completely, as krschacht did. In fact, it doesn’t appear to be in the “app store” page at all anymore - could that be part of the problem?


(Silvestar Bistrović) #17

The issue I’m facing is:

I cannot remove Fastly Jira app from Station.


Here’s the detailed report

  • Trigger: Not sure
  • Issue: Cannot remove Fastly Jira from Station. Weird thing is I don’t know how it get there in the first place - I never used this app before.
  • Explanatory gifs/pictures (we really need that :pray: ): okta
  • OS version:
  • Station version: 1.14.1

The issue I’m facing is:
YC app cannot be removed from the sidebar.


Here’s the detailed report

  • Trigger: Click link in YC Bookface email.
  • Issue: Clicking a link in a Bookface email automatically adds YC app to the sidebar, but the links do not open to the correct page – so I would like it removed. However, once the app is added to the sidebar, it cannot be removed and I have multiple instances stuck. If the link redirects worked correctly, it would be ok to leave.

Hey everyone :wave:

This has beeb fixed in Station’s version (1.17).
Could you update your Station and tell us if it’s been solved for you?

To update, just open the preferences (from the top bar menu) and click the “Check for updates” button on the right.

The issue on Can't remove an app from Station's dock / sidebar (Fun Confluence, YC Bookface, Fastly Jira, etc.) has returned.

Do I have to reset Station again to get rid of it?
