[OS X Emacs] Delay opening HTML files from a shell

No problem.  Also, signing the app solves the "clicking the menubar requires two clicks in 3.5” issue posted on this mailing list in early March. If Aquamacs is checked under

System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Accessibility > Allow the apps below to control your computer,

AND the app is signed, then the menubar will respond on the first click (no double click, no spinning wheel of death).

Thanks. And to take this one step further, I downloaded the latest nightly build and signed it using a self-signed certificate.  Here’s what I did:

1. Create a self-signed certificate following the directions at


Follow the link "To obtain a self-signed certificate using Certificate Assistant”.  After completing those steps, the certificate is now stored in your Keychain.

2.  From the Terminal, use codesign to sign the app.

codesign -s “name_of_the_certificate”  --deep Aquamacs.app

The external files now open instantly, as they should.


Thanks for the update on that—easier than I thought it would be to do that experiment!
