Description Martin Stransky 2017-11-16 11:59:09 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

Try to login with a U2F Yubikey on either the Bitwarden Firefox addon or GitHub's website with Firefox 57 and Fedora 26.

The security.webauth.u2f config has been set to true.

Actual results:

The Bitwarden addon reports: U2F Error: 1
The GitHub page just says that something went wrong.

The same addon and webpage work with Firefox on Windows 10.

This is the demesg log from Fedora:
[ 2003.802889] usb 1-1.2: new full-speed USB device number 7 using ehci-pci
[ 2003.884045] usb 1-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=1050, idProduct=0120

[ 2003.889952] hid-generic 0003:1050:0120.0006: hiddev96,hidraw0: USB HID v1.10 Device [Yubico Security Key by Yubico] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-1.2/input0
[ 2058.671048] usb 1-1.2: USB disconnect, device number 7

Ok, I just reproduced this on a fresh Fedora 26 install. What you need to do is the following:

> sudo dnf install u2f-hidraw-policy

Then restart. This made it work with the u2f-hid-rs Rust library used by Firefox, and by Firefox 57 itself.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.

Comment 2 Jason Tibbitts 2018-08-14 18:49:50 UTC
Why is this one filed against thunderbird?  This seems like a firefox bug.
