Firejail & Pale Moon.

Postby Spudozo » Sun Apr 02, 2017 10:59 am

Hi,

I have for quite some time run Pale Moon within Firejail with no issues. However since a recent Firejail/Tools upgrade I cannot get PM to run within that sandbox environment.
I do have the pm profile in Firejail which appears to be that which Fred Barclay wrote.

So what is missing?

AND

Do I need to run PM in a sandbox anyway? There seems to be differing opinions on this.

Running Linux MInt 18.1 Mate 1.16.1

Thanks.

I run PM in firejail in both Arch and Xubuntu 16.04.
I had to comment out (#) the following lines in the /etc/firejail/PM profile to get mine to run

private-bin palemoon
private-opt palemoon
Arch Linux Xfce x86_64
Xubuntu 16.04 LTS x86_64

Hello lightening slinger,

Thanks for that.

I'll give it a whirl and revert with the result.

I'm experimenting with the Debian and Ubuntu builds I have in the openSUSE Build Service repo. I can get PM to start with just commenting out the opt line (#30 in /etc/firejail/palemoon.profile for firejail-0.9.4.10). I could add that patched version of firejail to the repository with an added epoch so it won't get overwritten by another repo's upgrade, but then you'll be dependent on me to keep firejail current. Or maybe they'll fix the profile upstream somehow.

Yes I can confirm that is the case with firejail version 0.9.44.10
Rather than editing the profiles in /etc/firejail with sudo, I have a folder in /home/user/.config/ named firejail with a number of local profiles in there where you can add ignore commands such as
ignore private-opt palemoon
prior to a line with the command
include /etc/firejail/palemoon.profile
and any other oddities such blacklisting or whitelisting other files or folders not in the /etc/firejail profiles.
Firejail will read the local profile first before reading the /etc/firejail profile! Plus it does not get overwritten with an upgrade of firejail as happens with the /etc/firejail profiles!
