IceDragon Extensions Wont Run Inside Container
Not sure if this is the Desired Behavior with Comodo Firewall v. 188.8.131.5218. but it appears to be related to the following bug, which Mozilla is currently working on:
I have successfully applied the fix within Firefox by temporarily enabling Firefox to install and run studies in Tools>>Options>>Privacy and Security.
The interesting thing is that in IceDragon, running outside the container, all is well. No fix is necessary. Inside the container, however, no extensions will run.
Please refer also to the following thread from the NoScript extension forums:
Scrolling to page 2 of the thread, near, the bottom, is the following post from the Extension’s creator, George Maone:
Re: Firefox deactivates NoScript...and calls it Legacy Post by Giorgio Maone » Sat May 04, 2019 12:23 pm They've started deploying the hotfix. Notice that if you're the typical NoScript user, you probably have Firefox Preferences>Privacy & Security>Allow Firefox to install and run studies disabled, but it's currently (temporarily) required for the hotfix to work. If you're a Tor Browser user, you cannot enable Studies (for obvious reasons), but you can still (until this is properly and generally fixed) Open about:config Toggle the value of xpinstall.signatures.required so it becomes false. Restart the browser. Giorgio Maone -- Hackademix Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:67.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/67.0
Toggling the aforementioned xpinstall.signatures.required value inside of the Contained IceDragon browser and restarting the browser DOES allow the extensions to run, but this is most certainly not a long term solution.
(It is not necessary to change the value inside of the non-contained instance of IceDragon).
Another unexpected behavior this morning (May 4) is that bookmarks saved while working with IceDragon inside the container do not update the bookmarks in the non-sandboxed iteration of IceDragon. Prior to this morning, the added bookmarks were being copied over.
Is this the desired behavior?
