Description Giovanni Campagna 2012-03-11 19:05:02 EDT
Description of problem:
extensions.gnome.org (the website hosting gnome-shell extensions) uses a Firefox plugin that makes DBus calls to enumerate and install extensions. These calls are blocked by SELinux, making the website inusable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to https://extensions.gnome.org with Firefox
Actual results:
GnomeShellBrowserPlugin-WARNING **: Failed to retrieve extension metadata: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: An SELinux policy prevents this sender from sending this message to this recipient, 0 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.92" (uid=1000 pid=1262 comm="/usr/lib64/xulrunner-2/plugin-container /usr/lib64") interface="org.gnome.Shell" member="GetExtensionInfo" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination=":1.41" (uid=1000 pid=973 comm="/usr/bin/gnome-shell ")

Expected results:
The website loads gnome-shell configuration (version, installed extensions) with no error.

What AVC are you getting?

$ ausearch -m avc,user_avc
Comment 2 Giovanni Campagna 2012-03-25 19:10:27 EDT
Whatever it was, it's fixed with the latest updates of firefox, gnome-shell and selinux-policy, so closing.
