  1. 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…

    • Bug? - View in (null)

      The Reeder app was recently updated and I've noticed that the Context Menu item for Choosy is now "View in (Null)" instead of "View in Choosy" I don't'know if this is an issue with Choosy or Reeder, but thought I'd point it out in both support forums.

            • fix the menu to exhibit more typical behavior

              e.g., dragging from one menu to yours doesn't pop up the options immediately.

              • give the option to exclude Fluid apps from the browser chooser

                ...or let us select which browsers to include in the chooser by way of a check box in the list of browsers in System Preferences.

                As it is, when one has a lot of Fluid apps, the chooser becomes way to big.

                • add ftp programs to Choosy

                  How about extending Choosy to detect & use FTP programs too? I use two or three depending on my mood. So clicking an FTP link and showing me my options would be a natural progression for Choosy

                  Thanks

                  • Improve browser icons...

                    The browser icons look *fuzzy* at all sizes. They feel out of focus. Can those be made crisp? (I've been using choosy all of 5 minutes and it's already annoying me. Otherwise, I'm really liking it.)

                      While looking for a while to automate a global git status I noticed Choosy includes a git repo within its resources.

                            Choosy works by setting itself as the default browser. This problem often arises when another browser sets itself as the default (e.g. many browsers nag you to set them as the default when they are launched, and if you do so Choosy will be disabled)

                            Could this be the cause of your problem?

                            I have to launch the helper manually after each restart on Yosemite. This wasn't the case on Mavericks.

                              When I right-click a link in Safari and click "Open with Choosy", it brings up a list of browsers. I would like Choosy to use my rules to determine which browser to use. Is this possible?

                                      • Paid for choosy; sometimes, it just stops working during a work session

                                        Just recently had Choosy *stop* working during a session, after it has worked fine for a period. For instance, I am in Mail now and a link click simply launches the default browser -- the box of browser icons doesn't appear. Five minutes before, it had been working fine. This has happened 3 times in the past several days, during which Apple I believe has released some software updates I installed, so perhaps that's the problem.

                                        • 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.
