With Firefox 3’s broken AppleScript support it can be a bit tricky to send an URL from the browser to OmniFocus.
Fortunately, Charles McPhate has a solution for Firefox 2, that with only small adjustments works just fine for Firefox 3.
The trick is to make a bokmarklet (or favlet) that collects the information about the page, and an AppleScript that handles it. In other words, if you need AppleScript to collect the URL and Page title, this is not what you are looking for. But, if you want to create a OmniFocus item with a single click, it’s ideal.
- Go to Create OmniFocus Task from Web Browser URL and download CopyURLToOmniFocus.dmg
- Replace the script with the one provided here
- Follow Charles’ instructions
