FireDragon screen sharing in Gnome & Wayland

Hi,

I do love FireDragon, but for some reason it hardly ever shows up when I try to share a window using MS Teams (Running Gnome 41.5 & Wayland). The "Share Desktop" option doesn't work at all (I guess MS is to blame there) but I wonder why applications like Insomnia and Slack do show up as shareable windows, whilst FireDragon is almost always ignored. Perhaps I should install default Firefox and see if it happens there as well, but any help is welcome.

Cheers, Guybrush.

My garuda-inxi output is as follows:

I would certainly test with another browser, default Firefox would be the closest (although Librewolf is even closer).

I noticed that when there is a dialog window opened it seems Teams ignores the entire application, so make sure you only got only ONE Firedragon window open to begin with.

Are these running in Wayland or Xwayland?

I guess my follow-up question would be if you run the browser in Xwayland does it make a difference?

Sorry to keep you waiting. Using Xwayland doesn't seem to make a difference (in this regard). The Firefox window gets ignored as well, so at least I know now that FireDragon is not to blame. It would be nice if Team would support full blown screen sharing through Wayland, but I wonder how long it will take. :hourglass_flowing_sand:
