Open with Firefox


I use Devonthink Pro Office 2.0.4 and Firefox 3.6.10. When I right-click on a bookmark in my database and choose Open with browser name, Firefox is not displayed in my browser list. How can I add Firefox (and Chrome) to my list of available browsers ?

Thanks for your help,

Best regards,


DEVONthink lists all applications supporting .webloc files and this list of applications should be identical to the one in the Finder.

As Firefox/Chrome can’t open these files, the only workaround is either a script or using them as the default browser and the command Data > Launch URL afterwards.

Thanks for your message.

If anyone is interested, I hacked the following script with the help of some examples provided by Devon technologies. Although I am not an expert in AppleScript, it does work fine for me

tell application "DEVONthink Pro"
	set theSelection to the selection
	if theSelection is not {} then
			repeat with theRecord in theSelection
				set theURL to URL of theRecord
			end repeat
		end try
	end if
end tell

do shell script "open -a Firefox " & theURL
