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

In addition to trying with the latest build, I suggest you try running Aquamacs without customizations (Help->Diagnose menu).
If that doesn’t make a difference: there is a database that MacOS consults to find the right application (Does
"open -a Aquamacs.app file.txt" work any faster?)
Sometimes, this command can help by triggering a rebuild of that database:
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -seed -r -f -v -domain local -domain user -domain system
PS.: I do not replicate this. “open x.txt” brings up Aquamacs right away for me.

>> In March, I asked for some help regarding a 6-8 second delay when opening HTML help files for R using ESS. I’ve since discovered the problem is actually more general. Suppose I launch a shell in an Aquamacs frame (M-x shell), and try to open any HTML file, as with ‘open file.html’. It takes 6-8 seconds for the page to open, even if the browser app is already running. This happens on two different computers (work Mac Pro, home MacBook Pro), both running OS X Mojave (currently 10.14.15), and with both Safari and Chrome.
