    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?

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

    ~/Library/PreferencePanes/Choosy.prefPane/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/ChoosyHelp/.git

  3. Choosy doesn't behave correctly with Tweetdeck. I've set a rule to launch Chrome, but it always opens links in Safari. Won't respect the modifier key either.

  4. Choosy is not opening tweetdeck when links from twitter notifications in notification center are set to redirect there via rules, I have all my general preferences set to safari, just wanted Choosy to open those specific redirections in Tweedeck, any idea what I could be doing wrong? Thanks in advance for the help

  5. 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.

  7. I love choosy, but I would love it even more if I could use it for all document types, not just hyperlinks. It would be nice if the user could define the file extension(s) and relavent applications, and then customize the preference as with the current choosy. This would be especially useful for .doc .pdf .mp3 etc...

  8. I only want to use the advanced behaviour rules but I can't use that without constantly being promted in other browsers.

    Solution: add a behaviuor option: do not promt, stay in current browser.

  9. There is a nice new Google Drive client named Archy. But when I use Archy and Choosy together, I cannot open links from Choosy, in Archy. It would be nice to get this to work somehow. Any ideas would be helpful.

  10. I installed choosy on a Mac Pro with Lion but it breaks all links. I click on a link and nothing happens at all. If i disable "Choosy for Links" they work fine and open in the browser

  13. Choosy does not respond to ANY links in Safari.

    If I click a torrent link, the torrent file is automatically downloaded to my downloads folder - I don't get to pick a torrent client to open it with.
    If I click a magnet link, I'm not given an opportunity to select which torrent client I want to use, it always opens Transmission.

    This isn't an issue in Firefox - Choosy's popup window always appears and lets me choose.

    OS X 10.7.5
    Safari 6.1.2.
    Choosy 1.0.3

  14. When I click links in Notification Center I always want them to open in Safari instead of Chrome, but it's not an 'app' I can select from the rules tool.

  15. I just downloaded both Fluid and Choosy today (6/17/2014). I've created a Fluid browser for Google and limited it to google.com addresses. I then set up a Choosy rule to open all links containing Google.com in that browser. I did not need ChoosyFluid to find the browser, it just showed up. Clicking a link to Google or typing a Google.com URL in the address bar of either Safari or Firefox opens the URL in the same browser. It does not activate the Google Fluid browser. On the other hand, if I type apple.com in my Google Fluid browser, Choosy prompts…

  16. When I install Choosy Fluid it says http://cl.ly/image/1y2r2I383j1b - also I have tried completely removing Choosy from Preferences and trying it this way as well. Thanks,

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

  20. Choosy always starts at login even with the "start Choosy helper at login" box unchecked. What's different if I enable it?
