A URL without http prefix in contact viewer doesn't open [title edited, Fixed v2.0.6 b203]

Clicking a URL in a Contact and nothing happens.

 

I've just double tested and Alfred correctly opens the URL if you select a URL field in a contact. Could you double check the URL field in OS X's Address Book app is actually a URL field you are using, or just a note field.

Yes.  It is an actual URL field.

 

Hi Michael,

 

It's a little tricky to provide any more insight without more details. In order for us to be able to help you, we'll need some more information so that we can identify what issue you're seeing.

 

Here's what we need to see:

  • A screenshot of the field in Contacts.app
  • A screenshot of the field being edited in Contacts.app
  • A screenshot of the item highlighted in your contact in Alfred
  • Any additional information you can provide on the type

I'd recommend fuzzing out email addresses/phone numbers if there are any in your contact card. If you're not able to hide the personal information, you can email us on info@alfredapp.com instead. :)

 

Cheers,

Vero

Just a guess but I'm wondering about the format/encoding of the url. Wondering if there are special characters or something that would be throwing it off.

Figured out the issue.  Clicking on a URL field only works with the URL starts with http://...  

 

http://www.alfredapp.com - Works

www.alfredapp.com - Does not work

alfredapp.com - Does not work

 

Can it just not pass whatever is in a url field to the default browser?

 

Can't figure out how to attach a screenshot to this forum.

 

Ah interesting, you have definitely spotted a little bug! I am going to move this to the bug forum and clarify the title. You can expect a fix for this in a future release :)

 

Cheers,

Andrew

This should now be fixed in 2.0.6 :)
