Interestingly, this did not do it. I rebuilt the launch services database using Onyx and restarted, but still the same. Interestingly, TexShop is the only application that I am having problems with (TexShop 3.10).


P.S. The command line that Robert provided does not work since LaunchServices.framework is not in that directory and the link to the web page is dead. I did not go and search for the location of LaunchServices.framework, but perhaps that should be the next thing to try.
