  1. Fix bug where Choosy is disabled on startup

    Choosy is installed and working beautifully, and set as standard browser in Safari. Until I restart... Almost every time I restart (I'd say 80-90 % of the time), Choosy has disabled itself in the System Preferences and Safari has taken the position of default browser.

    So the first thing I need to do when I restart the computer is to go to System Preferences, click OK in the "Choosy is disabled" dialogue box (that's a very annoying little box), and check "Enable Choosy for links" and Enable Choosy for HTML files".

    This was the case in the beta versions and…

      I’m still looking into this, but it seems to have more to do with the OS than Choosy.

      This issues can sometimes be related to using File Vault. If you are using File Vault you could try disabling it. See this post on SuperUser for more information:
      http://superuser.com/questions/2735

      If you’re not using File Vault there are some suggestions about resetting your Launch Services settings in this Apple Forum thread: http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=8965818

      If none of that helps, please leave a comment letting me know.

      Sorry for the inconvenience.

    • 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.
