Alfred has limited length for alfred:// URL scheme [Improved 4.0.4 b1098 pre-release]

Alfred 4.0.3 [1092]

 

When pasting an alfred://customsearch/... URL into Alfred's query box, my fallback searches appear.


IMO, Alfred should offer to open (i.e. install) such URLs. It's tricky to do otherwise (you can't paste them in Safari's URL bar, though I'm sure that used to work).

 

EDIT: Tell a lie. Both Alfred and Safari fundamentally accept the alfred:// scheme. They just don't like some of the URLs Alfred generates.

 

I will investigate further.

@deanishe Hmm, looking into this, I had set an arbitrary limit many years ago. This may have been to work around an old macOS (performance?) bug, but I don't seem to have logged why I set this limit.

 

I'm going to increase it to 4096 for now, and add a ticket to do some proper investigation into this.

 

Cheers,

Andrew
