What software versions are you using?
Postico version: 1.3.2
macOS version: 10.13.3

The obviously correct solution is to immediately uninstall TablePlus.
Joking aside, there are a few ways to create a favorite from an URL:
It seems that's not intuitive enough. What did you try to do? Just press Cmd-V when the favorites window is active? I'll see if we can support that...
I just discovered solution 3, which works for now. I had the URL on my clipboard and hit New Favorite, and it didn't pre-fill (I think it didn't work because copying URIs from a browser sometimes ends up with a linebreak included in the clipboard data after the connection string). I had tried pasting into the Nickname field, but I guess Host would've made more sense. I did indeed first try Cmd+V with the favorites window active.
Also worth noting I am not a fan of TablePlus. It reminds me of every other DB interface out there: cluttered & confusing. Appreciate your attn to detail.
@swrobel here's the changelist for build B2459:
I think this should fix all the things. I also did some refactoring (got rid of some workarounds in 10.8 and 10.9 bugs that are no longer necessary since we require 10.10 now). I hope I didn't break anything.
