User-configurable Browser Integration Not Working (for me)

I'm trying to have Vivaldi use the Linux desktop beta. I have the 1.24.1 version of the extension and 8.0.33_26.BETA-26 of the 1Password desktop.

i used the example and uncommented vivaldi-bin in the /etc/1password/custom_allowed_browsers file. After some failures, I tried adding additional lines in response to the error messages


I still get this message in the Browser support logs:

INFO 2021-04-20T08:19:07.033 main(ThreadId(1)) [1P:native-messaging/op-browser-support/src/] Starting 1Password-BrowserSupport

Happened in: native-messaging/op-browser-support/src/browser_verification/
Additional error context: /opt/vivaldi/vivaldi-bin isn't a supported browser

Is there something I need to add/adjust?

    Hey there @arroznegro, thanks so much for writing in! I tested this out and got it to work, but it took a little extra doing - here's what worked for me:

    1. Ensure that 1Password for Linux is installed along with 1Password in your browser, and that browser integration is enabled from Settings → Browser.
    2. Close 1Password completely.
    3. Pop open a terminal, and run sudo mkdir /etc/1password (if you've done this already, you can skip it).
    4. Run cd /etc/1password.
    5. Run sudo gedit custom_allowed_browsers.
    6. Paste in the appropriate browser code - such as opera or vivaldi-bin.
    7. Save the file.
    8. In terminal, run sudo chown root:root /etc/1password/custom_allowed_browsers && sudo chmod 755 /etc/1password/custom_allowed_browsers
    9. Run 1Password - it will read our new config file and make the appropriate connections.
    10. Launch your browser - wait a moment, and the integration will commence! It will rise like a phoenix!
  • Truer words have not been spoken!! Works like a charm. I checked the others and they are good!

    Browser "/usr/lib/firefox/firefox" verified successfully
    Browser "/opt/vivaldi/vivaldi-bin" verified successfully
    Browser "/usr/lib/chromium/chromium" verified successfully

    Thanks so much!
