  1. Change your default web browser quickly and easily from within Alfred. Simple yet effective, this workflow enablea you to easily change your default browser. The official repository is located on Github --> https://github.com/stuartcryan/defaultbrowser-alfred-workflow where any issues can be logged on the issue tracker. I have also put this workflow on Packal. Update Version 1.2 released September 10, 2015: What has changed: Feature: Support additional browsers - added FirefoxDeveloperEdition and Webkit Nightly BuildUpdate Version 1.1 released August 8, 2015: What has changed: Feature: Support additional browsers - added Chromium, Canary and SeaMonkey Feature: Only show installed browsers Feature: Indicate which browser is the current default Feature: Added hotkey assignments (to launch workflow, launch with "chrome", and launch with "safari") Improvement: Renamed description in Alfred to simply "Default Browser" Improvement: Improved failure feedback Improvement: Major code refactor to remove duplication and speed up the workflow Improvement: Added an icon to the workflow Improvement: defaultbrowser binary has been updated to better support integrating. This code has been put into a pull request for the official publication of defaultbrowser. Workflow Details: A simple workflow to allow quick and easy changing of the default browser on OSX using a workflow in Alfred. Installation Download the .alfredworkflow file or you can get it on Packal. Run to import into Alfred Donations This workflow represents many hours effort of development, testing and rework. The images that have been licensed for this workflow from DepositPhotos also needed a bit of my moolah. So if you love the workflow, and get use out of it every day, if you would like to donate as a thank you to buy me more caffeine giving Diet Coke, some Cake, or to put towards a shiny new gadget you can donate to me via Paypal. You should also consider getting into contact with Margus Kerma and donating to Margus also for the work that has bene put into the defaultbrowser binary. Usage db < browser > Note - if you try to set the default browser that is already active as the default you will just get a notification. Browsers currently supported: Chrome Firefox Opera Safari Chromium - New in V1.1 Canary - New in V1.1 SeaMonkey - New in V1.1 Screenshots Troubleshooting If you are finding that you are seeing browsers listed that you have installed previously but no longer have on your system you will need to clear out all your default handlers. Unfortunately, this is the only solution I have found to date, you should research it in depth before you use it. The following command will re-initialise all the "handlers" OSX knows about and will therefore resolve the issue, it will also likely require you to set up all your custom file associations again. In other words... you do this at your own risk, I do not support this in any way shape or form... The command you will need to run on the terminal is: lsregister -kill Contributing Fork it! Create your feature branch: git checkout -b my-new-feature Commit your changes: git commit -am 'Add some feature' Push to the branch: git push origin my-new-feature Submit a pull request Change Log Version 1.2 - Feature ReleaseFeature: Support additional browsers - added FirefoxDeveloperEdition and Webkit Nightly Build Version 1.1 - Feature ReleaseFeature: Support additional browsers - added Chromium, Canary and SeaMonkey Feature: Only show installed browsers Feature: Indicate which browser is the current default Feature: Added hotkey assignments (to launch workflow, launch with "chrome", and launch with "safari") Improvement: Renamed description in Alfred to simply "Default Browser" Improvement: Improved failure feedback Improvement: Major code refactor to remove duplication and speed up the workflow Improvement: Added an icon to the workflow Improvement: defaultbrowser binary has been updated to better support integrating.

  2. Like Safari Assistant, but for Firefox. Download from GitHub. Search Firefox bookmarks Search Firefox browsing history Run bookmarklets Activate & close tabs Add you own custom scripts The workflow requires you to install a corresponding Firefox extension in order to communicate with Firefox. After installing the workflow, run ffass > Install Firefox Extension to get the extension. Once the extension is installed, everything should just work. The workflow is fairly customisable. You can add your own URL actions via scripts, set custom icons, and assign URL & tab actions and bookmarklets to alternate hotkeys. See the documentation for details.
  3. Has anyone figured out a way to use Alfred with Multi-Account Containers in Firefox? One use I would love to figure out would be to launch and open a bookmark in certain Firefox Multi-Account Container. Does anyone have any ideas?
  4. Hi all! I made my first workflow, available here ! It allows to quickly focus any given tab by filtering open tabs with user input, across windows, and searching in the tab's title and URL. It will only work with Firefox, there are much simpler options for other browsers. Hope you like it and don't hesitate to give feedback!
  5. Hello, I searched this forum and also the web to find a workflow that can be triggered by a hotkey that opens a new Firefox window with several sites in several tabs opened at once. All the scripts or snippets I found where buggy or not working at all. What would be the right approach to do that. E.g. I would like to press a hotkey that opens: 1. A new Firefox window 2. First tab "www.nba.com" 3. Second tab "www.sbnation.com" I would appreciate your comments Jürgen
  6. This Alfred workflow lets you select any Firefox profiles found in ~/Library/Application\ Support/Firefox/Profiles/. It lets you open different FF profiles in parallel. This workflow is written in Ruby which I never worked with before. I think there are better ways to do it. Anyways, I am using it on a daily base. https://github.com/mikezahno/alfredworkflow-ffp It is not yet on packal as I am new to the community. Any suggestions and contributions are very welcome.
  7. I use a variety of browsers between home and work, and while my Alfred settings nicely sync between my different computers, my bookmarks do not. I'd love it if I could sync my browser bookmarks to Alfred so they'd be accessible when I search the web.
  8. Hello fellows Automaters, I wanted to share with you the Workflow I just created using Alfred. I wanted to be able to autocomplete my Firefox bookmarks in real time. All the existing workflows I have found seemed to be more or less broken because they rely on things that have changed (more info at the end of the post)[1], so I decided to write something that would do what I wanted. After some hair pulling and doc reading, I managed to have that running. It's 4 pieces of code to glue together: - a Firefox extension, Sync bookmarks to disk that monitors changes in the bookmarks. When something changes, it invokes what's called a Native Application, and pass all the bookmarks to this Native Application. It has not UI (yet?) and works automatically. If you don't perform the second and third code setup explained below, it will fail silently. - a Native Application manifest to install inside Firefox settings. It will allow the extension to actually invoke a Python script outside the main Firefox process and write a file outside the internal browser sandbox. - the Python script that is invoked by the Native Application, it should be made executable and placed somewhere on your drive. It receives the data from Firefox and save it as is in /tmp/bookmarks.json. You can even look at this file and find your workflow on the first steps have been done. - and finally an Alfred Workflow, that reads the file dumped by the python script, do a bit of transformation and populates the autocomplete popup. The end results looks like this: - add a bookmark to Firefox - invoke Alfred, type "ff" followed by the words of the title of your bookmark and it should appear All these parts are available at https://github.com/octplane/firefox-bookmark-to-disk and pretty much any of these can be modified to your liking. The documentation is pretty rudimentary so please tell me if some parts need explaining. This is my first real contribution here and to the Alfred ecosystem, so feel free to indicate me if there are better ways to publish and package that (apart from doing an actual Macos installer :D)... Thanks! Pierre. 1: it seems that the places.sqlite file is now actively locked by Firefox and it is not possible to open it when the Browser is running. It results in the dreaded `Error: database is locked` from the one that tries to read the database.
  9. Google Chrome is my default browser. But as Firefox seems to have made some significant speed improvements I thought I could use both as "default browser". As it is not possible, as one can have only one default browser, I was wondering if there was a way I could set one "Open URL" action to open the url in the front browser whether it is Firefox or Google Chrome. As of today, I only can open the URL in the default browser.
  10. I love Alfred, but I think you forgot something in your new Bookmarklets feature: Why are Safari and Chrome the only source options for new Bookmarklets. Why not show a little love to Firefox, too?
  11. HI, Is it possible to determine wich 1password url is opened in which browser? I do have a lot of logins saved, but some site are only supporting Chrome, other Firefox etc. Now when i search in alfres it opens always the 1password url's in my standard browser. I would love have the oppertunity/workflow to change that. I'm able to open standard url's in different browers, what i'm looking for is specific for some 1password urls.
  12. I would like to use (either standard alfred web search or a custom workflow) alfred to launch google searches. At the moment, they all open in a new window if the app (Chrome, Safari, Firefox) is not already open. I would like the behavior to be that the search opens in a new tab even if the app is currently closed, and is launched by the alfred query. Any help appreciated.
  13. I was trying to make a workflow that will open a specific url in a private window/tab in Firefox, but am not having any luck. Any guidance or help would be appreciated.
  14. Hi guys, Someone else posted an excellent workflow that allows a user to add the current Chrome URL to Safari's Reading List. I tried altering the code to allow this to work with Firefox, as this is the browser I user personally, but could not get it to work. Does anyone with more techincal skills than I have know how to implement this as a workflow? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  15. Hi. I have noticed a small bug annoying bug. When I want to open web bage using "1P shortcut" alfred opens two tabs in Firefox. Problem affects only Firefox (I have checked Safari, Opera and Chrome). https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1275510/1P%20Alfred%20Firefox.mov Lucas
  16. I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me either: a) edit the default Google search function or create a custom search function that allows (google) web search results, of whatever I type into the Alfred box, to open in an existing (Firefox) browser window For example, even though I already have a Firefox window open with 3 tabs, a Alfred web search will open the google results in a new window. I'd appreciate any help. Thank you!
  17. This workflow (terminal command : /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -p) opens the Firefox Profil Manager with the keyword "pf". Ce workflow permet d'automatiser l'ouverture du gestionnaire de profils Firefox avec le mot clé "pf". Il permet de lancer automatiquement le Terminal avec la commande : /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -p Download (télécharger)
  18. Hi All-- I am a big fan of the ability for Chrome and Firefox (with InstantFox) to store search queries for multiple websites-- the same way that Alfred can. I have already built up a large library of stored searches in InstantFox that can be exported as text (see excerpt below) but I was wondering if there is a graceful way to convert all these to an Alfred Workflow in one fell swoop?

  19. Alfred Workflow to open Chrome's current tab in Firefox by using 'ff' keyword. I use it in web development to check if a website is looking good in Firefox. Download Github
  20. Here is a workflow for all those people who often have to use different Firefox instances (with different profiles). Type "ff" or "firefox" to start Firefox with the Profile Manager to manually select a profile. Alternatively you can add the name of the profile as parameter, e.g. "ff default" to start a new Firefox instance with the profile named "default". Keep in mind that a profile can only be used in one instance at the same time. Download the Firefox Launcher Workflow here.
  21. I came across this little app which indexes bookmarks for Chrome and Firefox in Spotlight. But you can then set it up so you get bookmark results in Alfred from your Chrome or Firefox account. I think it works a little better than the bookmark workflow currently available in the workflow forum. Just thought I would share it as some may find it useful. http://www.timschroeder.net/brow/
  22. Hello, I would like to use Alfred 2 to open the bookmarks in Firefox. Opening the bookmarks in Safari is already working fine but my preferred browser is firefox for MAC, therefore is there any chance to open bookmarks in FF instead of safari. It would be perfect if there would be a chance to use the FF bookmarks instead of the safari bookmarks but I would be also happy if anyone would be able to give me a hint howto open the safari bookmarks in ff. Best Regards Marcus
  23. Created this Workflow from previous Alfred v1 extensions. http://d.pr/f/nK8j
