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.

        For your information, the prompt switches back and forth between Retina and non-Retina, so there's something that happens EVERY TIME the prompt is displayed, which sets the resolution for the NEXT TIME it is displayed. It's not just about the very FIRST TIME the prompt is displayed (although it depends on your definition of "first", of course :-)).

        It should be possible. It's likely there's some setup I'm doing only the first time the prompt is displayed that I should be doing every time it's displayed. It's on my list of things to investigate further.

        You are, of course, absolutely right. Choosy "remembers" the last monitor on which it appeared and uses the same resolution the next time it appears, regardless of which monitor it appears on.

        Don't know if it'd be possible for you to fix this so that Choosy uses the resolution of the monitor it appears on.

        I think I may know what's causing this: if you're using a Mac with a retina display, but you're attaching a non-retina display, Choosy will probably end us using the resolution of whichever display it was opened on first even when you open it again on the other display.

        I stand corrected. I *do* get a Retina prompt in most situations. I am trying to track down the specific circumstances in which I got a standard-res prompt instead of a hi-res prompt. (I got the screen shot to prove it.)
