I'd love to have this figured out to narrow it down more, but at apparently random times when I click on a link, instead of choosy showing up, the computer will freeze for ~15 seconds. Background task will continue (itunes playing music, etc.) but user input does nothing (cursor won't move, can't alt-tab, can't switch spaces, etc.)
After the ~15 seconds is up, everything goes back to normal. If I click a 2nd time at that point, choosy will mostly likely behave normally.
Also, and possibly related is choosy will be visually bugged.
This looks like it might be related to driver issues with the Nvidia Geforce 7300 graphics card.
Could those who are following this thread leave comments indicating which graphics card their Mac uses?
Thanks for your patience while I fix this.
When I open the Choosy pref pane, I immediately see red text at the bottom and think, "oh no! what's wrong?"
Nothing is wrong - you're drawing my attention to a non-essential piece of information to tell me that you're thankful I registered.
Ideally, you would swap out the license info form for a display of my information (I shouldn't need to click "Save" again once my license key was verified).
At the very least, use black text for this message (or other HIG-compatible color that does not usually signify an error).
I have a major preferences UI overhaul in the works. The registration UI is only a small part of it, but I’ve attached a preview video showing where that particular piece is headed.
I hope you agree that it’s a huge improvement!
Ever since upgrading to 2.0, I cannot used Choosy any longer. I simply get a popup dialog saying "The application Choosy can't be opened." Nothing obvious to me in the console to help figure out what's happening. I've deleted and tried 2.1 with no luck.
Any suggestions?1 vote
This issue is caused by an incompatibility between Jamf and Choosy’s Hardened Runtime settings. I’m working on a fix.
Was glad to see the new Firefox extension update since it hadn't been working before, but now I don't see the Open with Choosy menu option anywhere in the context menu when I right click on a link. Did that break in this version bump or am I doing something wrong?1 vote
I’m getting reports that this is still an issue after reinstalling, so I’m re-opening the issue.
- Don't see your idea?
