Problem with Firejail and Chromium

Hello,

I have a problem with Firejail and Chromium.  I cannot type anything on it - on search bar, address bar, and even inside any webpage when I run it with firejail.  If I run it WITHOUT firejail, no problem. 

When I first had that problem, I purged chromium, deleted personal files of chromium, reinstalled it, and it worked for a while.  Then again, it didn't work after a couple of weeks.  This time I did the same - purged and reinstalled - but it doesn't work anymore. 

I am using Chimaera. 


Thanks in advance.

Google +1. User privacy 0. This shouldn't come as a surprise . . .

Re: Problem with Firejail and Chromium

I can't use chromium in firejail either. Google has sabotaged disabling of certain "features". One of the best minds on the Devuan team, hasn't found a way to do it either. Perhaps someone else has the magic incantation . . .

Re: Problem with Firejail and Chromium

Chromium doesn't need firejail, their seccomp-bpf sandbox is better and you can't run two sandboxes at once.

To get firejail to work try

chromium --no-sandbox

But it will decrease security.
