Whether I double-click the "TLA+ Toolbox.app" or run the toolbox executable directly (at "/Applications/TLA+ Toolbox.app/Contents/MacOS/toolbox"), I see the same behavior: the TLA+ splash screen appears and the top menu populates with "File", "Window", and "Help". After the splash disappears, only the chrome of a tiny window with the minimize/maximize/close buttons appears (just big enough to house those three buttons), then the process just sits there. The actual Toolbox window never appears.

I, too, find the TLA+ Toolbox not to work. I am on macOS High Sierra (Version 10.13). But where the OP does not even see the Toolbox window, I do see the window; however it is unresponsive: the link "Getting Started," e.g., doesn't work. The menu is also unresponsive (i.e. when the app is active, I cannot, e.g., get the 'File' menu to drop down; a click just doesn't register.)
