    • 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).

      • Add ability to open in a Firefox container tab

        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.

        • Choosy is causing 1Password 7 to crash

          Choosy is causing 1Password 7 (latest version) to crash. So I've had to disable Choosy. Would love it if you could test it with 1Password and find a fix. Thanks.

          • 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

            • 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.

              • Could not load Choosy preference pane.

                i updated to Choosy 1.3 and got this:
                Could not load Choosy preference pane.
                So... wait for update?
                Mac OS 10.13.6 (17G65) High Sierra
                Thanks

                • I'd like different settings for one browser and multiple browsers

                  Hi. I purchased Choosy years ago and stopped using it for a reason I can't remember. But I downloaded it again today and I was happy to find out that my license is still valid.

                  Anyway, I have a suggestion for the Behaviour options.

                  Right now there are only options for "When one or more browsers are running,.."

                  However, I'd like there to be separate options for when one browser is running and for when more than one browser is running.

                  For instance, I normally just have Safari running as my only browser. When Safari is the only browser running,…

                        • As an option: open Chrome in new *window*, not a new tab in existing window

                          When clicking a link in e.g. Mail, it's horrible to be teleported to a workspace where I have other Chrome windows because Chrome insists on opening new windows in a new tab in a new window. This script used to work (and I was able to make Choosy use it), but now it ends up creating a second instance of Chrome (wow, had no idea that was possible with any Mac app!!). This new instance doesn't have my bookmarks and is not logged into the sites where the "original" chrome instance is logged in. That wasn't a problem before, It…

                              • Choosy 1.3 can't recognize custom Google Chrome profile directory

                                Choosy only recognizes Google Chrome's profile with "Default" or "Profile x" directories.
                                But a profile directory can be anything if you create it with `profile-directory` parameter.
                                For example:
                                ```sh
                                $ open -a "Google Chrome.app" --args --profile-directory="foobar"
                                ```
                                And I prefer this way because "Profile x" is not semantic.
                                Please support this case.

                                • Opening non-incognito in Chrome

                                  Thanks for adding opening specifically to incognito on Chrome! It's really great.
                                  The current issue I have is that even when specify to open non-incognito, Chrome seems to open the url in the front most window, even if it's incognito.
                                  I understand that this is this has always been the existing behavior, and I'm not sure if this is possible, but the new feature made me want more :)

                                  Thanks for the great product.

                                    • Bug: Click on link, get Choosy, Chrome opens new window (wrong) but not page (blank/home instead).

                                      MacOS 10.13.1. Chrome 61.0.3163.100 64bit. Seems to have started in the last few weeks. Choos Safari or Firefox and those open correctly.

                                      • FileMaker google auth

                                        It would be great if you could make FileMaker google oauth play nice with a secondary browser, e.g. Vivaldi. I get as far as getting the rule to work: w.o.w. Vivaldi opens, automatically accepts, FileMaker continues the login... but Vivaldi stays open with the window open as well. And this is exactly the outcome that I want to avoid. After 10 auths there are windows all over the place. It would be nice if the operation works just like the browser is the default browser: if it is not open, it starts, opens the auth window, authenticates, closes the window,…

                                        • [Issue] Chrome Launches Empty New Window, No URL Visited

                                          Choosy v1.2.2
                                          Chrome Version: 62.0.3202.62 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)
                                          macOS 10.13

                                          Steps to reproduce:
                                          1. Several Chrome windows opened (chrome has a pending update)
                                          2. Launched link with Chrome (via Slack > Choosy)
                                          3. Tried removing and adding chrome back to choosy browser list but issue persists

                                          Expected:
                                          1. New tab opened in most recently active window, url is visited

                                          Actual Result:
                                          1. New empty window launched, url not visited

                                          Reported System Error:
                                          {subsystem: 'com.apple.launchservices', category: 'default', description: 'LSExceptions shared instance invalidated for timeout.'}

                                          ps, love your app

                                          p.p.s the ajax request event (triggered while trying to type a title)…
