In zathura, I use :exec firejail firefox to start firefox with firejail. There is an error "cannot create /run/firejail/profile/14844" and firefox does not start. When I type firejail firefox in terminal, it works well. I guess this may be related to privilege problem. But I do not know how. Thanks in advance.


I think the problem is that zathura sandboxes the process, which disable the feature to create a sandbox.

See man zathurarc for more details.

For instance, to set sandbox mode to none, put in ~/.config/zathurarc this line

set sandbox none

With that firejail firefox should work.
