TF 1.9.0 opens external drives in new window (no tabs)

bug

#1

Opening any new folder is fine except for when I double click to open one of my external drives from my desktop. Doing this opens in a new window as opposed to a new tab in my existing Finder window. Even with all other Finder windows closed, the drive’s instance is still opened in a new, non-tabbed window. If I try to open a new tab in the XHD window with Command+T, it opens another new window with tabs.


#2

Ah, you are correct. My new code thinks those mounted volumes are mounted DMG files. DMG files look bad if they have custom background and TotalFinder adopts them.

A temporary solution would be this Terminal tweak:

defaults write com.binaryage.totalfinder TotalFinderDoNotIgnoreDMG -bool true

You have to restart Finder.app via CMD+OPT+ESC and then launch /Applications/TotalFinder.app again for this to take effect.

I will try to solve it and get back to you.

workaround will do the trick for now - thanks for getting back to me!


#4

I have just implemented a more robust detection of DMG files. This bug will be fixed in 1.9.1.

To remove the flag:

defaults delete com.binaryage.totalfinder TotalFinderDoNotIgnoreDMG

fantastic, thank you for the super quick fix! looking forward to 1.9.1

TotalFinder 1.9.1 is out:

Unless I’ve done something totally wrong (not an unusual thing), the problem is still there. I downloaded and installed the 1.9.1 update, click on a NAS disk and get the same No Tabs problem.

Okay, I just checked and it’s working correctly on another machine. For some reason, it didn’t install the update. Did it once again and it’s working fine. I should have known it was on my end :smile:

Thanks for the confirmation.
