Nice catch. 

It looks there is more issues and given MCS is not propagated. The mentioned AVC does not block it. There are another AVCs caused by this reproducer.

Comment 1 Lukas Vrabec 2015-12-08 13:49:32 UTC
Mirek, do you have these AVCs? 

Thank you.

Just try to run

sandbox -X -t sandbox_web_t -l s0:c455,c394 -H ~/firefox_home/ -T ~/firefox_tmp/ firefox

and you will get them.

Together with policycoreutils-sandbox fixes and with


we would have it working.
