Today I installed the 1Password native client for Linux on Xubuntu using the software center. It looks like this is version 0.8.2-1, updated on August 8, from the "Snap Store".
On launching the app, I see an option to "Visit 1Password.com to Sign In" vs. "Enter account details manually".
As I don't particularly enjoy entering the long security key manually, I tried using the "Visit 1Password.com" method but can't figure out how to get it working.
I am currently signed into 1Password.com in my browser (Firefox). I have a family account.
When I click the "Visit 1Password.com to Sign In" button in the app, I get directed to https://start.1password.com/native/signin. It offers "Choose an account to add to 1Password" with my family account shown in a button.
I click my account in the browser and XUbuntu brings up a "Launch Application" dialog. I choose 1Password in the dialog and then select the "Open link" button.
1Password now pops up again with the same page as before, with "Visit 1Password.com to Sign In" and "Enter account details manually" buttons.
Clicking the "Visit 1Password" button again repeats the process.
If, in the browser, I select my account again in Firefox, I just get the same "Launch Application" dialog.
If I click "Still not working?" in the bowser page, I get a step by step:
I can copy the link with the button here, but launching 1Password does not do anything special. It just has the same login options as before.
Fully exiting the 1Password app before clicking the account from the browser page does not make any difference.
How is this feature supposed to function? Is it browser-dependent? Am I doing something wrong?
I finally gave up after several tries and just copy-pasted the security key from my browser login and the app seems to load fine, just the browser-based sign-in seems to not be working.
