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());

It looks like whatsapp-nativefier-inject.js is failing on me again after upgrading nodejs-nativefier to 10.1.0, but I'm not sure if that's just a coincidence. So again, no connection, but the google chrome big message...

I have the same issue of the try bar disappearing after the lock of the session on gnome. I used --electron-version 9.0.2 but it seems to not work anymore. Any fix?

Yes, it looks like it happens when you lock your session on gnome

Anyone else having issues with the icon not appearing in the tray?

Broken again for me.

I solved the Google Chrome 49+ error with:
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/chromium /usr/bin/chrome
This in case you don't have Chrome, but Chromium, which I think is for most users.

@aarestu, where should one place that piece of code, so that it becomes persisten?

capoeira commented on 2020-08-12 12:57

first time I get "WhatsApp works with Google Chrome 49+" on this and qtWaw at the same time

function recheck () {
        if (document.querySelector("a[href='']")) {
                navigator.serviceWorker.getRegistration().then((registration) => {
        setTimeout(recheck, 5000); // callback


this workaround worked for me
