I am facing a problem with some apps/shortcuts not opening on macOS. Thanks for your suggestions.
Description of the issue:
After I create a shortcut of a website and try to open it (in /Users/user/Applications/Brave Browser Apps), it won’t open. The app’s name flashes in the macOS’s Menu Bar and disappears. It is obviously trying to open itself but then it crashes.
Examples: https://web.whatsapp.com/, https://community.brave.com/ didn’t work at all, but https://github.com/ worked (but did not open in a separate new window even the option had been checked when creating the shortcut).
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Open a website, go to Menu > More Tools > Create a Shortcut.
- Give the shortcut a name, check “Open in a window”, click Create.
- Folder “Brave Browser Apps” opens, your new Web.app is in it. Double-click on it, it won’t open.
(Behance had “Open in a window” checked, The Newyorker did not)
Double-clicking the newly created shortcut should open the website.
Brave Version( check
Version 1.15.75 Chromium: 86.0.4240.99 (Official) (x86_64)
The same issue appears even with the “Install Brave Community App” from the browser’s main menu. The “Brave Community.app” shortcut won’t open this website.
//Updated, it seems like the “Open in a window” checkbox matters.
