Firejail profile for Virtualbox

I installed Firejail on Debian host. And apply default Firejail profile for Virtualbox “sudo firecfg”.
Does applying this profile on virtualbox can mess up with Whonix in some way ? Is it advised to apply profiles like that ?

It’s possible that Firejail profile restricts something important for Whonix to work and Whonix starts leaking ip or other leaks happens ? Can profile be harmful for Whonix anonymity ?

i have tested that and saw that whonix was working , so i didnt notice any issues before. But its not supported by whonix to work always with sandboxed virtualbox, facing issues is under expected state.

You have nothing to worry about. Firejail will not cause IP leaks regardless if installed on the host OS or Whonix VM

Unknown. Thinkable.
