Add attachment from Gmail extension doesn't work

Hi,

I can not attach files from the Gmail extension (i.e. embedded in Gmail) but it works fine when the app is in a separate browser tab by using this URL: https://gmail.todoist.com/app

In the chrome console, I can see this error when I'm uploading the file:

Uncaught SecurityError: Blocked a frame with origin "https://gmail.todoist.com" from accessing a frame with origin "https://mail.google.com". Protocols, domains, and ports must match.

Hi Mathieu,

Unfortunately, this issue is due to a browser limitation regarding uploading files through extensions which means we would not be able to get around it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Regards,

Clyde

Unless you find a workaround, maybe you should hide this feature when the
app is embedded within Gmail.
