Upgraded Ubuntu to 22.04, where Firefox is Snap by default. Wasn’t going to fight it, especially since Canonical has made 3 blog posts talking about how much faster they made Firefox on Snap.

Since then, I’ve had subtle but annoying issues.

  • Can’t Google things that have a colon after the first word- i.e. error: file not found doesn’t work
  • I get notifications for pending updates
  • Other apps like Gnome’s Software take a minute+ to load on my beefy computer

This isn’t even a meme. Snap is trash. I wanted to be neutral and not join the “hate train” but seriously. Snap is that bad.

    Yeah snap firefox always took a while to launch for me. My real problem though was that it just seemed to ignore my systems DNS settings so I couldn’t use it to access internal websites in my VPN, and there was no simple fix for that. Just installed native firefox from some sketchy repo instead
