It’s not malware if it behaves as intended and as desired by certain members, although I will concede that for just as many other people, it’s a nuisance.
I don’t think I had to manually uninstall the package on my own system here — it’s been three years since I installed this machine, so I don’t really remember —but I believe the package is installed by default now, and that is not what I myself would have agreed to. Alas, I am not a developer.
that’s the one i meant, i mispelled it.
I actually like matray and probably the problem was manjaro-browser-settings as suggested by @Aragorn . I will reopen the discussion if it happens again after uninstalling it, but looking more into it it’s probably that.
I personally did not even knew i had the browser settings package installed and by looking at what it does it’s almost certainly some sort of integration bug between matray and browser-settings.
