FireDragon not seeing KeepassXC

Hi all,

It seems that the KeepassXC extension isn't "seeing" my KeepassXC data base from FireDragon. I installed the extension to Firefox and that works fine.

Browser integration enabled, I bring up the settings in the extension, press settings, then connected databases and I see the button "connect". Usually, pressing that brings me over to my local KeepassXC installed application that presents me with a dialog box asking to name the database connection. However in this case, using FireDragon, it does not.

Furthermore, when looking at the general preferences for the extension in FireDragon, I see this:

 KeePassXC-Browser needs KeePassXC to retrieve credentials.
You can download the latest stable version from

You are running KeePassXC version: unknown

Latest available version of KeePassXC: 2.7.1 

The extension doesn't know the version of KeePassXC that I'm running. It's like FireDragon can't access things outside of itself?

Any ideas?

I'm not 100% sure, but I think you need this:

(Native messaging part)


ln -s ~/.mozilla/native-messaging-hosts ~/.firedragon/native-messaging-hosts
Did the trick. The article also instructs the same for /usr/.... but that link already existed.

Thank you VERY much. The help is appreciated!
