if you don't care for the direction of Ubuntu / Canonical than choose a Linux distro that is free of Snaps.
Don't care for Firefox Snap the use the non-Snap Firefox.
This article describes how to download and install Firefox on Linux.
From another article.
All fake-experts hate snaps, because they love bashing Canonical.
about distro choices , yes i've made up my mind ubuntu is out after 8 years, I go probably Mint, and Debian for the server beacuse itś less of a learning curve
I have searched a litanny of "go for Deb-Firefox" but
A) firts of all I didn´t have a choiice to not go for snaps , Cannonical shoved it down my throat during an update, and they did it behind my back
B) Cannonocal didn´t inform me of the consequesnces of SNAPS that I would not be able to use cardreaders, do banking connect with public platforms etc before blindsiding me with the SNAPS MALWARE
C) In november anopther Cannonical spinner published an article https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2022/11/firefox-snap-native-messaging-take-two
that the problem was resolved ... itś not , it lies
after searching and reading the list of articles about replacing snap-firefox with deb--firefox i found out that
to begin with if you do as described in the articles you are still getting the SNAPS based software installed instead of the deb based product
1- you have to remove all snap based software form your system , eg gnome, audacity, firefox etc etc...
2- you have to remove the snaps software itself because you cannot leave snaps on the machine and only install FF from deb
3- you have to find info on how to remove definitively SNAPS from the apt and update systems so that it doesn´t get reisnatlled behind your back
4- for each software you took out you have to set parameters that suppress snap based updates , cause reinstallatioon of SNAP and the snapbased software package and to prioriotise the updates from deb based repositories
If I look at it SNAP has all the hallmarks of a virus not of legitimate software
Actually the sarcastic personal attacks of bartman an sphen , our local playground bullyś, are the reason many people are vitriollic in their comments because reporting the problem and asking Cannonical or the community experts for a solution gets you nowhere. In the same way you get nowhere with MickeyShit, itś why after eight years of feeling quite satisfied with Ubuntu iḿ now looking elsewhere
