Call for testing: native messaging support in the Firefox snap

A feature that is known not to work in Firefox packaged as a snap is Native Messaging. Thanks to the work on a new WebExtensions XDG desktop portal and its integration in Firefox, this is now available for testing if you’re running Ubuntu 22.04 (or the upcoming 22.10).

You will need to switch firefox to the beta or edge channel. Alternatively, you can have the stable and beta versions installed and running in parallel.

Easy instructions:

sudo snap refresh firefox --beta

This was tested with the GNOME Shell integration extension as well as the KeePassXC Browser extension. Testing and feedback with these and other extensions that rely on native messaging to work are very welcome. Let us know which extensions you tested, how you installed the native host connector, and whether the functionality worked as expected, partially, or not at all. Thank you!

Tangential question: could/will this be added to the Chromium snap if it works well for Firefox?

Yes, once it’s been proved to work well in Firefox (both as a snap and as a flatpak), the obvious next target is to implement support for the native messaging portal in chromium.

Has anyone tried the GNOME Shell Integration plugin for Firefox to add GOME Shell extensions? I’m not sure what the requirements are for that beyond the native messaging… I think there needs to be something running on the host too? Is that daemon (is it a daemon?) still installed by default in 22.04, or otherwise is it still in the repo if not installed by default?

Edit: Well I really should learn to read… I see now that this was mentioned in @oSoMoN’s original post and I completely missed it :woman_facepalming:

I tested the 1Password extension with Ubuntu 22.10 and Firefox Snap beta and edge. Both don’t work.

Works for me using the KeepassXC browser addon.

  1. I reinstalled the snap firefox --beta (having previously removed it - I’ve been running it from the tar.gz installation as detailed on Mozilla’s webpage). Upon startup, I created a fresh profile, accepting the permissions dialog option for native messaging. Then I closed FF.
  2. Then I copied the contents of my existing profile folder from .mozilla/firefox/profile.name into this new snap profile folder at snap/firefox/common/.mozilla/firefox/profile.name after first deleting the existing contents.
  3. It all starts up (quite fast) and works immediately with all existing configs, addons and bookmarks. KeepassXC addon is fine and works normally.

I tested here the 1Password extension, in a fully up-to-date 22.04 VM, with firefox from the beta channel, and the test was successful. I installed 1password from the deb provided on their website. I didn’t test with 1password installed as a snap though. EDIT: I also successfully tested with the 1password snap (after uninstalling the deb).

Can you run firefox like this:

MOZ_LOG=NativeMessagingPortal:5 snap run firefox

and share the log output here?

I’m using Ubuntu Kinetic to do the test. However, I don’t think this would affect the result. My main test is to check if I can use the application running on Linux to unlock the extension, similar I do in the the DEB Firefox.

This message suggests that the prompt to allow the extension to talk to the portal was initially refused. Can you remove the permissions file (rm -f ~/.local/share/flatpak/db/webextensions), restart the portal (systemctl --user restart xdg-desktop-portal) and test again?

Problem still happening.

Can you share the output of flatpak permissions webextensions ?

Interesting… How could I change that?

➜ flatpak permissions webextensions
Table         Object                       App          Permissions Data
webextensions com.1password.1password      snap.firefox no          0x00
webextensions org.gnome.chrome_gnome_shell snap.firefox yes         0x00

Try:

flatpak permission-set webextensions com.1password.1password snap.firefox yes

Executed and now I have the permissions set. Also deleted that file and restared xdg-desktop-portal, but the extension doesn’t call the application to open up and login.

What exactly do you mean by “the extension doesn’t call the application to open up and login”? In my tests, setting up the extension doesn’t require launching the application, one can log in to their 1Password account directly from the extension’s pages.

The extension is self-sufficient for simple use, but the integration is useful, AFAIK, for two things: unlock the extension using the application, so you could unlock using fingerprint reader, for instance, and edit entries in the Linux app instead of website. There is an option on extension settings to enable this features: Here is the setting on extension:

Here is the extension in the Linux app: Using the deb Firefox and the Linux app works perfectly. Using the Snap Firefox doesn’t work and I get the logs I showed you.

I see. That setting in the application was greyed out for me, because I had installed 1password as a snap. After I re-installed it as a deb, the setting is available and enabled, but indeed unlocking the extension doesn’t offer the option to use e.g. biometric authentication from the app. I wonder how this is implemented, maybe these advanced features don’t use native messaging, but rather another communication layer? Can you maybe ask about it on their support forum and link to the discussion here?

Here it is the discussion about this matter. Let’s try to get traction and get this solved.
