Ever since 0.9.64 firejail relies on xdg-dbus-proxy for D-Bus filtering. This major overhaul has considerable impact on the quality of the provided profiles.

* Fine-grained D-Bus sandboxing with xdg-dbus-proxy.
xdg-dbus-proxy must be installed, if not D-Bus access will be allowed.

Also see the discussion at To summarize that, Fedora requires it in its firejail.spec and Debian/Ubuntu put xdg-dbus-proxy in its Recommends array. I'm not sure if the Arch Linux packaging policy would allow it to be in depends. But at least users would be more aware of its importance if it was an optdepends.


Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon
