Hey guys,

I created the original fix.

And now I share another way to use whatsapp web on nativefier. No code injection required.

Pressing ctrl+shift+i (on Linux) and the Devtools window will open. Then click on Application -> Service Workers And check the option Bypass for network.

Now press ctrl+r to reload. And ctrl+shift+i to close the Devtools.

Whenever you open your whatsapp the problem will occur, but since the Bypass for network option has already been enabled, you only need to press ctrl+shift+i (open devtools), ctrl+r (reload), ctrl+shift+i (close devtools)

@frealgagu, thanks for your work. This package was in my list as one of required apps to be installed after install Arch. I saw your last update ( document.querySelector("a[href='']") ), NICE/GREAT/GOOD!

Another way to do the same in 2 lines: document.querySelector("a[href='']") && navigator.serviceWorker.getRegistration().then(r => r.unregister() && document.location.reload());

WhatsApp desktop shows "WhatsApp works with Google Chrome 36+", maybe something related with nativefier or the version of electron appears to be an outdated Chrome?

@tembleking please add --tray to nativefier instruction in order to add the system tray icon. Thanks.

Is there any way to iconify the application? Something like other applications using electron. Thanks in advance.

I also can't reproduce the segfault

I cannot reproduce the segfault here.

On the other hand, the application name that appears in the task bar needs to be fixed.

Hi, it is possible to add a dark theme? through CSS or Electron or something else? Just like you change the style on browser with the addons "Stylus"

Thanks for your time. Best Regards

Is this compatible with any GNOME icon tray extension?

From the Arch GLIBC bug url:

I installed a patched version of glibc and everything seems to work again:

pacman -U

I tried with whatsapp, and Bitwarden (also eletron based and wasnt working before) and both work fine
