I’m posting here as long as ProtonMail support folks are LAZY folks that indeed don’t bother solving customers issues.
I’m a protonmail user, and recently, I decided to use the Protonmail Bridge App (V1.8.12) with Thunderbird on my Qube-OS computers, but I encountered a small but very annoying issue :
I have installed the Protonmail Bridge app rmp package in the Fedora 33 template used by my Fedora-33 AppVM, and everything went fine.
Once the installation is done in the template, I launched my Fedora-33 AppVM and then launched the Protonmail bridge app, declared the protonmail accounts I wanted to use, and everything went fine. The Bridge app created a new entry in the “Default Keyring” and the keyring daemon asked me a password to protect the “Default keyring” : Everything went fine. Then I successfully configured Thunderbird to use the bridge, and everything went fine too. It works perfectly.
The issues come after this, after shutting down my Fedora-33 AppVM, and later on launching it back again :
- I start the Fedora-33 AppVM used for the Protonmail bridge and Thunderbird.
- I launch the Protonmail Bridge app, the keyring manager asks me the password that is protecting the “Default Keyring” : I type the correct password, and then the Protonmail Bridge windows appears, but all the protonmail accounts I had previously declared are not present. There is not account declared.
From here, I am forced to manually shut down the Protonmail Bridge app, and launch it again (And this time the system doesn’t ask me the password for the “Default Keyring” as it was previously entered successfully and the keyring was successfully unlocked) and the Protonmail Bridge window appears, but this time, the previously declared protonmail accounts are correctly displayed, and I can then launch the Thunderbird app, and everything works fine.
The issue is that I have to launch the Protonmail Bridge app twice to have it in the normal state and ready for thunderbird.
Does anyone have an idea why the unlock of the “Default Keyring” triggered by the first launch of the Protonmail Bridge App doesn’t seem to forward the correct informations to the Protonmail Bridge App ?
Does anyone have an idea how to solve this ?
Is it a Protonmail Bridge app bug related to the keyring manager access, or is it something else ?
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
