Change Contacts' prefpane Maps URL to use https (and support Apple Maps?)

In the Contacts prefpane, it appears that Alfred uses a http:// link by default. It's minor, but this should probably be a secure https:// link.

 

It may also be beneficial to update this preference to support opening contacts in Apple Maps.

@Chris Messina This option has defaulted to https for a few years now. I wonder if you edited it at some point in the past and changed it back, and that has taken precedence over Alfred's default value.

 

Also, if set to the default value (with the https), it does open the contact in the Apple Maps app.

Huh, strange! I had never used Alfred's Contacts picker because, prior to my M1 MacBook Pro, I had too many contacts — and so didn't want to slow down Alfred's performance. I don't recall ever visiting this preference as a result — and only did so now because I believe my M1 can handle all my contacts. 

 

What is the current default value? Is there a way for me to reset it?

Clear the value out then quit preferences, then it'll reset to the default (which is in fact the same as you have, just with https).

Ah ha! But actually, it's not the same — it defaults to Apple Maps! I must have changed it and used http instead of https when I set it up. User error — but good to know!
