  1. 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…

      • add support for recognizing different Slack teams, similarly to how you recognize different Chrome profiles

        This would allow me to make rules that say things like "when I click a link in Slack team A, use Chrome profile B to open it." Right now I have it set to always prompt for every link in Slack, but I almost always choose the specific Chrome profiles for specific Slack teams (work, personal, etc).

        • 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).

                        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.

                        • 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.

                                  • 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,…

                                      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,…

                                      • How to get Choosy 1.1 to work after Migration Assistant?

                                        Choosy 1.1 worked fine in Yosemite 10.10.5 in my old machine. But Choosy is still not working after running Migration Assistant in my new i5 MacMini also running Yosemite even though I've now uninstalled Choosy in the old one. What's up? Why isn't it working?

                                        • 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.
