(solved) Freeze - Account window stops launch of editor

When I launched UEFN yesterday, I got a web page that asked me to link my Unreal account. After I accepted, everytime I launch UEFN, the editor would get stuck in the image shown below, and I would see an extra hidden window called “account” that appears nowhere. The only way to proceed is if I close the UEFN window (not the account one) and that would launch the editor.

This happens everytime I launch the editor (PC). To trigger it, you have to have the web page pop up and then accept to link accounts.

Hi Wertandrew! Would you do us a favor and post a log for UEFN after you encounter this issue?
You can find it in:


Will do!

Thank you Wertandrew! Delivering to an engineer to get some insights.

There was a fix to address a race condition with this popup window that went out in the build today, is it still happening for you?

I dont see it anymore (launched editor 5 times now, didn’t happen once).
