Alfred and Brave browser integration

If I set Safari as my default browser, I can launch a login from Alfred and Safari will launch opening the websites and fill in the login details. However, if I set Brave as my default browser and the browser is minimised, Alfred will not launch the website. Instead 1Password mini is launched.

I don't know what is the problem, Alfred, brave or 1Password but thought I would start here.

Many Thanks

Paul

    @pdoak: I believe that's related to a Chrome limitation, as I've seen the same with Chrome, and Brave is also based on Chrome. If you have a Brave window open, does that work as expected?

  • Yes it does

  • I don't understand why this should be a limitation as if I want to search the web from Alfred, I can invoke a search and Brave will launch if hidden and show me the search results. Why would this be different when trying to invoke a website and fill the login contents from 1Password

    I'm not familiar with what might be technically different between Chrome and other browsers here, but Chrome-based browsers are the only ones I've seen similar reports with. Safari and Firefox seem to work fine.

  • Thanks Ben. I will post a similar question in the Alfred forums and see if anyone can shed some light on the reason why it does not work.

    Feel free to post the link here when you have it. Thanks! :)

  • I posted the question on the Alfred forum and this was the response:

    "All Alfred does is tell 1Password to "open item with ID XXX-XXX-XXX". What happens after that is down to 1Password and your browser."

    From that response, it appears that 1Password cannot interact with Brave properly. At a minimum, I would expect 1Password to be able to launch Brave but it can't seem to do that.

    I understand how you might get that impression, but again this works as expected with Firefox, Safari, and Opera, which leads me to believe it is something specific to Chrome-based browsers. As Brenty mentioned above I believe the difficulty lies there.
