In this short talk I'm going to present the work the Ubuntu Desktop Team did in collaboration with Mozilla developers to enable native messaging in the Firefox snap.
This is made up of several pieces, including a new WebExtensions portal, and changes in Firefox to make use of the portal where available.
I will demo the functionality with several extensions that require native messaging to work.
I will also mention future work to implement this in more browsers.
