1Password on Mastodon

On Fedora 35 and Ubuntu 21.10, unlocking the web extension creates another instance of 1P

Community Member

When I go to unlock 1P by clicking on the extension icon in my browser or when using CLI flags for Wayland shortcuts, instead of talking to the currently running instance of 1P, a new one is created.

I can tell it's a new instance because it won't let me use biometrics, and it adds a duplicate status icon to the top bar.

    Hello @ceiphr, I'm sorry to learn of this. We'll be happy to investigate this further and figure out what's going on.

    Could you send us a brief email at [email protected], with a link to this discussion? You've given us a great basis to get started, and over email we can discuss system specifics beyond what we could prudently do in the forum. We'll look forward to resolving this for you!
