I´ve got a problem with firejail.
In principle this sandbox works quite well. I can start a browser (firefox/midori) and other applications as well (like rhythmbox). What I want to do now is use the overlay-functionality: firejail --overlay firefox.
Yet that doesn´t work.
Firefox itself produces the following message: " Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible". Yet that can´t be. Without firejail there´s no problem and even "firejail firefox" works well.
The following message is taken from the terminal:
rosika@rosika-Lenovo-H520e ~> firejail --overlay firefox

As far as I know --overlay has been working as of kernel version 3.18. As I have 4.4.0-45-generic x86_64 there shouldn´t be any problems. Can anyone help me? Thanks a lot in advance.
