Keyword to open a URL in Chrome opens two windows

Recommended Posts

I use Firefox as my default browser. However, some websites I only want to open in Chrome, so I setup a keyword for them, which opens the URL in Chrome.


When Chrome isn't running and I run the keyword, Chrome opens two windows. One window has the URL I want, and the other window is just a blank tab.


Why does Alfred open two Chrome windows? Is there a way to prevent the blank window from opening?

I've found this old thread by search for the exact same issue. If I start a web search right from within Alfred, and Firefox isn't running yet, it will start it with two windows. One which has a blank page and another with the search result. Is there a way to prevent this?

I'm running Alfred 4.1, Firefox 78.0.2 on macOS 10.15.6

Ensure Firefox is running before you open the URL.


This isn't something Alfred is doing: if you end up with a new, empty window when you open a URL with a browser that isn't running, it's the browser's fault.
