I’m having a problem with the Flatpak Firefox, it started occuring on Silverblue 38. Has anyone run into this before?
Steps to reproduce:
Click Firefox icon in dash. Cursor shows loading circle, then nothing happens.
Click Firefox icon in dash a second time. Error message is shown:
“Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.”
- Wait a minute or two and Firefox opens.
Troubleshooting I’ve tried so far:
- Created new Firefox profile.
- Still broken, so I ran
flatpak uninstall --delete-data org.mozilla.firefoxto uninstall Firefox Flatpak and clear all data/cache.
- Then I reinstalled Firefox via Flatpak, and problem persists.
Any suggestions on how to debug this?
