why is librewolf spoofing browser version as v91? Won't the latest version (v92) be more popular, hence less identifiable?

Hi! I'm having a problem in the past few weeks where when I have "Always ask where to save files" selected, my desired configuration, and try to download something, the file picker windows simply never appears, and the download isn't ever started. For a while I worked around by setting to download to a folder automatically, and moving it to where I want.
I am using nemo for file manager and it works fine in other programs, only LibreWolf shows this issue. It used to work properly. Switching profiles did not help.
Running Debian Bullseye (LTS), intalled from FlatPak

How can I identify if it's from upstream (nemo's side)

I would suggest checking if browser.download.useDownloadDir is set to false. This should be that specific setting.

Could it be permission issues?
ohfp
@ohfp:matrix.org

really just guessing here, but you could check if download.lastDir is set / is set to something odd and/or if there's a way for nemo to specify something to open by default (or removing nemo settings / cache files, as a last resort); this might(!) be some flatpak-/permission related issue that makes things silently fail. alternatively, maybe something xdg-desktop-portal-related on your system might've changed (assuming it actuall uses that for the file picker).
additionally, could you try launching librewolf from the terminal (or maybe just open the browser console [the global one, not the page specific dev tools] so we can see if it throws some errors)?
DamnOrangeCat
@damnorangecat:matrix.org

download.lastDir isn't set.
Pretty sure nemo can do that, but with heavy modification which I have not done. It works normally for other programs, even for files with same extension. How can I check if it's a flatpak thing?
Prompting another program to save and using xprop on it, I discovered that I'm probably using WM_WINDOW_ROLE(STRING) = "GtkFileChooserDialog", if that even tells anything.
Good catch on the console! Sadly, nothing gets logged when I try to save.
On the terminal... Bingo!
(librewolf:2): Gtk-WARNING **: 23:36:53.967: Can't open portal file chooser: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such interface “org.freedesktop.portal.FileChooser” on object at path /org/freedesktop/portal/desktop
I suppose I gotta install that on flatpak? I did nuke some Gnome things on flatpak a few weeks back 🙈
Thank you so much ohfp and PoorPockets McNewHold too! :) Gotta love the community

Reinstalling from the flatpakref seems to be solving the issue, it's reinstalling all those packages I nuked :)

just for shits and giggles: you might want to give adding MOZ_DBUS_REMOTE=1 a try to when running the flatpak (an example for how to modify env variables with flatpak is given here: https://gitlab.com/librewolf-community/settings/-/wikis/FAQ#q-linux-cant-open-links, albeit with a different issue to solve). it's really just another blind guess on my end, but considering that's a "magic variable" that tends to solve quite a few other xdg/wayland/remoting/portal/whatever-issues, it miiiiight just do the trick :D

if not: the error hints towards flatpak trying to get/call the file chooser using xdg-desktop-portals and failing. this might just be solvable by installing the appropriate package (xdg-desktop-portal-{gtk,kde,wlr} for gnome/kde/wlroots, for example). that's kind of the "new and proper way to handle quite a lot of things cross-environment-wise", which isn't always smoothly implemented in many distros yet. (but nice if it works).
if this also doesn't help… I'm off to bed now, so just remind me again tomorrow to take a closer look at it, without just throwing around the first vague ideas coming to my mind ;)

I have set the variable and installed xdg-desktop-portal-kde (I only had xdg-desktop-portal installed), and no luck. :( Should I try to nuke my configs now? As said, running on another profile doesn't change this behaviour.

I should say my main profile is quite hardened, but not insane.

I will remind you again, tomorrow, thanks! Will also create an issue for you so it can be documented and searched. I have also blindly tried switching xdg-desktop-portal as per librewolf-community/browser/flatpak#2.
Should I open this on browser/flatpak ?

ohfp
@ohfp:matrix.org
[m]

still waiting for the final OST volume to release… hope mac quayle will someday get to it ^^

no need to nuke the configs yet, I think (unless it's stuff you can easily recreate – then it can't hurt, I guess? – but I'm not expecting too much). I assume that needs a bit more digging into how flatpak works here and how things can go wrong with it, so it probably won't be so easily solved ^^

an issue at browser/flatpak sounds great, yep!

with that said: finally off to bed now; let's try getting this fixed tomorrow ^^

vedec: when sending an url, you should use LibreWolf\librewolf.exe, and not librewolf-portable.exe, as it's only ment to pass the right -profile argument to LibreWolf\librewolf.exe, and not much else..

A big thank you to the maintainers and contributors of this project! I really like these default settings and that sweet LibreWolf tab inside the settings panel, nice touch :)

Question, is there a reason why "first party isolation" is not on? I use multi con and temp containers so not an issue for me, just wanna know if there is any downside to it other than the obvious (no cross-site login etc).
Also, i've been using user.js file. What is the difference between that and a .cfg file?

How come not all telemetry is disabled in about:config
fabrizio
@fxbrit:matrix.org
[m]
telemetry is disabled through policies and then we also disable it in the .cfg file (which is what causes the changes in about:config) in order to do this in depth, if some prefs are not changed it's because they are redundant with others
I believe most releases disable telemetry directly at compile time so you have 3 different lines of "defense"

How can i randomize LibreWolf browser fingerprint everytime i open a website or tab?
maltnerd
@stanzabird:matrix.org

we can't go deep enough into the firefox source to actually randomize some aspects of fingerprinting. LibreWolf resists fingerprinting the way Firefox does it..

Quick question, does Librewolf allow for installing addons locally?
I really don't want to have to deal with Mozilla just to develop personal plugins
ohfp
@ohfp:matrix.org

Yeah, it's built with that enabled, so even unsigned extensions can be installed – you only need to set xpinstall.signatures.required to false in about:config.
