I have used Qubes for quite some time, and this is the first time this issue has happened. I don’t know what I did when it happened, but I’m pretty sure I wasn’t making any changes to the dispvm.
Since a few days, I have been unable to open a URL in a dispvm. That is to say that
qvm-open-in-vm '$dispvm' http://some.url/ fails. What happens is that the dispvm starts, and immediately shuts down.
Manually opening Firefox in a dispvm works fine. And I’m also able to open other file types in a dispvm (such as PDF’s).
I’ve run out of ideas as to what to check, so I’m coming here in case someone has seen it before. Is there anyone that can provide advice?
