[SID - Unstable] today's xdg-desktop-portal-gtk upgrade breaks firefox-esr

#1 Post by wizard10000 »

This morning's update to xdg-desktop-portal-gtk brings back a year-old Firefox issue where the app takes about 25 seconds to open.

I'm sure this will be fixed quickly but wanted folks to be aware. Filing bug report now, will edit post with bug number.

cheers -

As a workaround you can uninstall the package but this may not work well with snaps and flatpaks that need a gtk file picker.
we see things not as they are, but as we are.
