Snap is a really cool system and in some ways it's better than Flatpak. I understand the maintainability benefits over repo-packaged software. But, consistently, Snap-packaged software Does Not Work; Chromium broke when they snapified it, and now Firefox is broken on @ubuntu too.

I can't report bugs against it, because the support page for Mozilla is useless and the distro doesn't accept bugs against the snap version - even though, from a user perspective, the change is simple. "Firefox on Ubuntu used to be really good, and now it doesn't work."

I don't know what to say other than,
Canonical, you broke my heart. I've been a die-hard Ubuntu user since Lucid - on my first ever computer of my own! - and I think I'm done.

I'm getting a Lenovo 2242 NVMe SSD for my T480 in today, and I think I'm going to install Fedora.

@tindall both default installs are snapified in Ubuntu? I am afraid to upgrade.

@confusedcharlot Yep! The `chromium` package has just installed the snap for a while; `firefox` does so in 22.04


@tindall I'm currently building chromium for Android, I may have to expand targets.
