Firefox snap app does not recognize custom cursor.
I can't get Firefox to use some custom cursors. Firefox is only recognizing the cursors that came installed with Ubuntu. Any of the cursors I installed will default to DMZ-White, but Firefox is using those cursors that came installed with Ubuntu. I tried defining the default cursor in /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme but did nothing as well. Also I tried with the cursor in /usr/share/icons and in /home/name/.icons and firefox cannot get in any of those.
I don't know if it's something wrong with my cursors or it's some inner thing with Firefox, any one has a guess? Incompatibility or something missing from the cursor?

Sounds like a snap issue. https://forum.snapcraft.io/
Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla, run firefox-bin from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release
Snap has restrictions for what directories are allowed and you probably need to whitelist a specific file path or place the file in allowed locations.
I installed Firefox from a debian package, and the cursors worked as they should. Probably it's the snap package fault.
