  1. 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.

      • Support for Handoff

        Let's say I want to handoff a webpage from Safari on iOS to Chrome on Mac. How would I set up a rule to support this?

        • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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

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

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

                    {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)…

                      • New lines in predicate causes "Could not load Choosy preference pane."

                        Somehow I ended up pasting a new line into what ends up in the predicate value in behaviors.plist. This causes the "Could not load Choosy preference pane." error and prevents any links from being routed. I removed the offending newline and all is well again.

                        • Could not load preference pain on 1.2.2

                          I've previously had Choosy installed and working fine but was having some issues with it still loading 1.1 after the recent update.

                          I eventually got both instances to stop starting on reboot by removing from system preferences and deleting `Choosy` directory from `~/Library/Application Support`.

                          However now when trying to re-install from 1.2.2 download I keep ending up with "Could not load Choosy preference pane". I note the `Choosy` directory is back under `~/Library/Application Support` as you'd expect.

                          What else should I be looking for to get this back to a "clean" install so I get Choosy running again?

                          n.b. I…

                            • Check modifier key works

                              Hi. Great program, Have been using it for years and it makes managing multiple browsers (one for general browsing, one for web programming, etc) easy. Unfortunately there is either a bug or I misunderstand the modifier key option. I want to use a custom key combo to trigger the ask for browser option but I have 2 issues: first, it always enters command shift and I can't change it; and second, the choose option triggers even if I don't press any modifiers! Am I missing something here? Thanks. Again, apart from that, great program!

                              • Workaround for Safari dialog in Sierra 10.2.2?

                                In Sierra 10.2.2, Safari (10.0.2) systematically displays a dialog whenever I invoke "Open in Choosy" in the contextual menu:

                                "Do you want to allow this page to open Choosy?"

                                Is there any way to avoid that extra step every time?

                                • Real Retina support for Choosy 1.1?

                                  The release notes for Choosy 1.1 say that it has Retina support, but when I click on a link that triggers the display of the browser prompt, the icons and text labels are still non-Retina.

                                  Running Choosy 1.1.1 in Sierra 10.12.2.

                                  • Make choosing browsers with shortcuts 1,2,3,4(etc)

                                    Make choosing browsers keyboard friendly with shortcuts 1,2,3,4 (etc) default behavior and allow users to modify with their own definable keys when the modal window comes up to choose a browser. Example I could see someone using f for firefox, c or gc for chrome s for safari, and so on. Since we have to choose a browser often in the beginning anyways before we setup a ton of rules, best make it as painless as possible.

                                      • Choosy to Chrome stopped working

                                        Not sure what happened but after a Chrome restart, if I now try and select Chrome to open a URL, the choosy dialog graphic just moves down to where I clicked. I see the menu bar switch to "Google Chrome" however, so it seems like it's activating Chrome just not able to get the URL to it.

                                        Is there a log file or something I might be able to look at to try and figure out what has happened? Is this a known issue at all?

                                        I'm on Chrome 55.0.2883.95, OS X Yosemite (10.10.5).

                                        • route by availability of domain in keyring

                                          I use different browsers by security domain: unauthenitcated, authenticated, sensitive. I have a separate keyring for sensitive domains. It is quite cumbersome to add many "webaddress contains" rules in the advanced tab. Improvments would be:
                                          (a) pop up a window that will allow browser selection for the first time a domain is opened, and
                                          (b) look up if a domain is listed in an unlocked keyring and select a default browser based on it.
