Bug Description

This seems similar to bug #1535058 but that one seem to be quite old, so maybe it's not related. Nevertheless I'm experiencing the same issues: each time I try to launch an app from the dash or the launcher it crashes..

I'm on Xenial + Phone Overlay, all packages updated at the moment of writing.

I managed to start konsole (KDE) from the dash. From there I could try to start the webbrowser-app with ubuntu-app-launch. Using that way, the browser crashes immediately after it opens. If I just type its name and press enter, it works correctly (I'm actually writing this update from it). Let me know if there's any needed log or information.

As I started the browser from konsole, which is using XMir, I'm probably able to see the browser through X, and the problem to be on the Mir side.

The webbrowser-app problem is bug 1590561.

If you have any other failing apps, please log separate bugs for them.

Also beware of bug 1654915.
