@Acidham, thanks for your workflow! I use it quite often. 

Can you please consider such feature request: to add the keyword which will list results sorted not by number of visits, but by recency - when the url was visited last. 

I believe it can be handy. 


You mean triggered by a separat keyword e.g. `bhs` which sorts based on recently visitied?

Hi @Acidham - I've been using this workflow for a while now and really appreciate it. Recently (and I'm not sure if this is associated with moving to Alfred 5 or v3.x of the workflow) the workflow has stopped working for me (i.e. no results returned).


Alfred sometimes (seems to be inconsistent & I'm not sure how to reliably recreate) now returns the following error:



Unable to run task!

Reason: working directory doesn't exist.




Check that the selected language exists on your system.


If you're syncing Alfred's preferences, also check that all related workflow files exist locally.

... any ideas on how to resolve please? I tried changing /bin/bash to /bin/zsh with no change in behaviour


Many thanks,

Thanks @Acidham In terminal I get the following


$ where bash
-bash: where: command not found
$ locate bash

WARNING: The locate database (/var/db/locate.database) does not exist.
To create the database, run the following command:

  sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.locate.plist

Please be aware that the database can take some time to generate; once
the database has been created, this message will no longer appear.

$ which bash

The last command returns the same result after

chsh -s /bin/bash


I'm getting the same (lack of) result with the new version I'm afraid i.e.

I changed to shebang to /bin/zsh. Therefore, what result do you get with where zsh?

What macOS version are you using? Even /bin/bash/ should be available at least.

I'm using 12.3.1.


I deleted the workflow and reinstalled ... and now it's working fine. Thanks again for your help 🙂
