Can't open links in sandboxed firefox

Post by ratpizza »

I run Firefox through firejail but I can't open links while in sandboxed mode, I can't for example open download-links in freetube or open links in discord which redirects to steam. Firefox tries to open them in a new window rather than just a new link and then just gives an error-message that firefox is already running but not responding. This used to work fine in previous versions of firefox. Any tips?

Have you made special (other than default) firejail rules?
Do you have the following file in your home directory? it's a hidden file (ctrl+h to see)
/home/username/.config/firejail/firefox.profile

No, I haven't made any special rules and no, there is no such file in my home directory.
