I created a file
%%!TEX TS-program = pdflatex
%%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode
Word \dumb Word
so that it stops for the undefined command \dumb. I then press x and return and have no problems.
I wonder if you have a very old set of preferences. I think I've seen this before. Please open TeXShop-Preferences and go to the Engine tab. Then press the two Default buttons in the pdfTeX section as well as the two buttons in the TeX+dvips+distiller section. Then press OK. The lines should then have the -file-line-error option set which is needed by TeXShop to process errors.
