why does using 1Password on Safari Technology Preview on Catalina open separate Safari window?

Safari Technology Preview is my default browser, using 1Password 7 with STP opens a Safari window.

1Password Version: 7.3.2
Extension Version: 7.3.2
OS Version: OSX 10.15.1
Sync Type: iCloud

    Hi @byaruhaf! Welcome to the forum!

    Can you please share a complete list of steps to trigger this behavior so we can test it here too?

  • Hi @ag_ana

    Step1: Open Safari Technology Preview
    Step2: Try to use 1PassowrdX

    you will notice the Safari app opens automatically, not sure why.
    I mead a video to show you.

    Thank you for the video @byaruhaf!

    I was able to get Safari Technology Preview to work as expected with the 1Password extension here. I could only reproduce your issue if I had Safari (or any other browser) configured as the default browser in my macOS Preferences.

    I know you mentioned that you already have Safari Technology Preview configured as your default browser, but can I ask you to check your macOS Preferences again to make sure that is still the case? Under macOS Preferences > General, you should see this:

    Once you do this, things should be working :)

    I have had the same issue as well and I did confirm I have Safari Technology Preview set as the default browser. I did also try to set default to another browser and re-set back to STP and same issue.

    Can you please confirm what macOS version, 1Password version, Safari version and Safari Technology Preview versions you are running at the moment?

    OS 10.15.1 beta, 1P 7.4 Beta-0, Safari 13.0.3, Safari Technology Preview Release 95 (13.1)

  • Hey @mattpoppy, thanks for the details. I was able to reproduce this on my end. I've asked one of our Mac devs about this — I'll let you know what I find out, when/if I find out anything.

  • I've had the same issue. If I set the default to Safari and then try to use 1P in Safari Tech Preview instead of bringing up the 1P window (after clicking on the icon) on Safari Tech Preview it brings it up in Safari.

    If I set the default to Safari Tech Preview the reverse also happens. Instead of bringing the window up in Safari it brings up the window in Safari Tech Preview.

    MacOS 10.14.6, 1P vs 7.4 (70400014), Safari Version 13.0.1 (14608., Safari Tech Preview Release 93 (Safari 13.1, WebKit 14609.1.5)

    Confirming the issue, which is longstanding in my case, indeed since the early days of Mojave up until the latest Mojave patch (10.14.6).

    My reproduction is slightly different in that the 1P extension always triggers the plain Safari, not the Developer Preview, irrespective of the default browser setting.

  • Thank you for sharing that data point with us, @macula. :smile:

  • Would like to add up to the thread at I can't get 1password to work with STP either. It would launch the stable Safari instead. I, too, would like to use 1password with both of them. Could Agilebits team help us on this issue?
