All you have to do is delete the middle name of the person in *your* contact card where it is stored as a relationship.
I'm not sure why that works; it shouldn't, but it does.
We respect its storied history, and value the contributions of its many readers, but we can no longer support it at the level it deserves.
In Lin Castor (which you need to double-click twice to fully open for editing): on handle_url(args) if (|URL| of args starts with "https://mail.google.") then tell application "Google Chrome" open location |URL| of args end tell else if (|URL| of args starts with " then tell application "Firefox" open location |URL| of args end tell else tell application "Safari" open location |URL| of args end tell end return 1 end Obviously you should customize the code to suite your own specific needs.You can validate the script right in Lin Castor before saving/activating it.I had tried a ton of suggested fixes for the issue before stumbling upon this work around. In it, I link to the Apple discussion forums at the bottom, where people have been saying that this workaround fixes the issue for them.[crarko adds: I find I already don't have middle names in any of my Contacts, so I've not seen this.I think the actual hint here is a reminder that if a site misbehaves, changing the user agent can be an effective troubleshooting tool.] Usually I want to open Gmail in Chrome and URLs pointing to my development server in Firefox. There is this nifty free app called Lin Castor that enables you to register your own handler for an URL.
Although it had beed designed to register your own non-standard URL schemes, it can intercept standard http and https as well.
Recently, I was trying to get a Java applet to run in the same way on 2 i Macs and my Mac Book Air.
The applet is a simple vpn client from Juniper that lets me access a Citrix Desktop from any Mac that I can install the Citrix receiver client on so I can work on 'Company stuff' from a large screen i Mac when I'm sat at home or from my Mac Book when I'm on the road (it works fine over 3/4G).
That's why I call it a workaround instead of a fix.
I figure Apple is mucking around with Siri and perhaps caused a bug or some sort of corruption.
Thanks for your many years of attention and everything you've done to make the site such a valuable resource.
