    • Fix modifier key feature - text area to record keypress does not appear

      Please fix this bug. The little "text area" to record modifier keys does not appear when selecting the modifier key option.

      It's unusable. Not sure if others have seen this issue crop up as well but I've had it since the Mojave beta and it's persisted past other Mojave fixes.

      See the screenshot here: https://imgur.com/ofLUlfG

      • Choosy crashes Chrome

        Did Choosy stop supporting Chrome? Every time I tried it in the past week it crashed my Chrome browser. I tried reinstalling it and it doesn't even show up in the list of extensions (but it does for Safari and FF). My version of Chrome is 68.0.3440.84 (Official Build) (64-bit).

          The Whatsapp desktop client 0.3.1847 on OS Sierra 10.12.6 seems to ignore any rules completely.

          • Add Mailplane Support

            I have found that Mailplane does not respect choosy rules... it does not give me a browser prompt, and does not use the correct browser when I try to add an advanced rule for the app.

            • let me send choosy server a LIST of urls

              I want to click on an x-choosy url presented by a number of apps and servers (all localhost in my case, but ...) and send choosy a LIST of urls to open according to its rules.

              • Improve performance

                I really like Choosy. Just bought it. But I'd like to see it improve in performance. My super powerful MacBook Pro takes about half a second to open a link and display the browser. Without Choosy it happens in immediately. Any ways to achieve that? Kind regards Eric

                • Still not working on Mojave 10.14.2

                  I get the same "Could not load Choosy preference pane" as was reported months ago.
                  Is there a way to make this work?

                  • Add option to select based on power status

                    Add an option to the ruleset to allow decisions based on the power status of the computer: For example pick one browser if you're plugged in, and another if you're on battery.

                      • Fix the download .zip to actually contain version 1.3

                        When I download version 1.3 from your website, I get a zip file named "Choosy 1.3.zip" but when I extract it, it always contains Choosy 1.2.2, which does not work on my machine (could not load extension error). Is there actually a version 1.3 in existence? If so how can I get it?

                          • Could not load Choosy preference pane (with console log)

                            Choosy does not load. Opening it from the System Preferences reveals an error: "Could not load Choosy preference pane"

                            The console reports the following:
                            choosy System Preferences[772]: ### com.choosyosx.ChoosyPrefPane instantiatePrefPaneObject exception:You must specify the URL of the appcast as the SUFeedURL key in either the Info.plist or the user defaults!

                            I've tried Choosy 1.3, 1.2.1 and 1.1 with no avail

                            I've uninstalled it and deleted Library subfolders to "start fresh"

                            I'm using OSX 10.11.6 and Choosy has been working fine for many months. I really don't understand why it stopped working.

                            I'm a registered user and don't really care about…

                              • general help with rules running on mOS 10.14

                                I am having difficulty activating rules on Mojave; don't think the rule is entered incorrectly.

                                rule to specify that all google docs and drive urls are always opened with chrome even if browser is not running.

                                set all the following are true
                                -> web address matches regex (?i)(.*docs.|.*drive.)(google.com)
                                always use this browser … chrome

                                [later tried if any of the rules are true
                                -> web address contains 'docs.google.com'
                                -> web address contains 'drive.google.com'
                                prompt to select from these browsers … safari, chrome]

                                Neither rule worked. Was always prompted with running browsers (as per browser behavior settings) but the advanced rules…

                                  Firefox now allows container tabs. It'd be cool to support these tabs as options in Choosy, so when clicking a link I could open it in a Firefox "Work" tab or a "Personal" tab.

                                    • Stop Choosy from running in AppTranslocation mode

                                      Choosy runs in AppTranslocation mode, even though the .prefPane file has been moved after downloading. This makes Little Snitch throw up a confirmation dialog after every restart.

                                        I eventually intend to change Choosy’s architecture so that it’s just an app, and no longer has the preference pane. Once that’s done, Choosy would run from the /Applications folder and would no longer be subject to translocation. However, that’s a big change.

                                        In the meantime, Choosy itself continues to work correctly.

                                        Little Snitch could probably do something to support apps running under app translocation (e.g. allowing rules to be set for an application’s bundle identifier, so that the path it was executed from wouldn’t matter) but that is outside of my control.

                                      • fix that Choosy doesn't work for links in other applications

                                        I installed Choosy. I gave it one simple rule, which is to open all links with a particular URL in a particular browser. It doesn't work.

                                        I read through all of the documentation and couldn't find anything I'm doing wrong.

                                        I tested first with "use choosy for links" not checked. But clicking on links just opens in my default browser, as usual. I tested next with "use choosy for links," which asks me if I want choosy to be my default browser. I said yes. But clicking on links results in nothing happening at all.

                                        I tested by clicking links…
