Something went wrong Reloading Figma may fix this

Hey everyone, I wanted to chat with you all about a common Figma issue some of you may have run into – the dreaded “Something went wrong” error message. Ugh, it’s so frustrating when that pops up, right?! Believe me, I’ve been there more times than I can count.

Another frequent culprit is issues with plugins and extensions. Well-coded third party plugins generally integrate seamlessly, but sometimes incompatible or buggy plugins can clash with Figma’s internal workings. This can interfere with the loading and rendering of files. The best fix is to temporarily disable any recently installed plugins to see if the problem persists.

Browser-related problems can also trigger the error. Things like outdated browser caches and cookies, compatibility quirks between certain browsers and Figma versions, or general network/connection instability during file loads are common pain points. Trying a different browser, clearing caches/cookies, or simply reloading often resolves it.

Rarely, internal server errors on Figma’s end may block specific operations temporarily. However, the stable hosting infrastructure makes these outages very infrequent. File corruption can also stem from conflicts introduced during simultaneous editing or improper file sharing/syncing between team members.

Overall, just stay calm and methodically weed out potential issues. You’ll Get it fixed in no time; I promise! Let me know if any other questions come up – I’m always around if you need help troubleshooting. Fingers crossed you all have smooth sailing from here on out!


  • Refresh/reload the Figma page by pressing Ctrl+R or clicking on the refresh icon in your browser.
  • Clear your browser cache and restart the browser. This will force Figma to reload fresh files and components.
  • Make sure your browser and Figma app are up to date. Go to Help > Check for Updates from within Figma.
  • If using a plugin, try disabling any plugins you recently installed by going to Plugins > Manage Plugins.
  • Close any other open Figma files or projects that may be interfering.
  • Save your current file locally as a backup, then File > Close the file and reopen it.
  • Check for any ongoing Figma service outages on their status page: ↗
  • Try accessing Figma through a different browser if possible, like switching from Chrome to Firefox.
  • As a last resort, contact Figma support with details of the error for further troubleshooting.

Be patient after trying these fixes as Figma may need to completely reload/refresh to resolve the issue. Let me know if the problem persists.
