Do we really need updates every freaking day?

Since Firefox moved to Snap updates, two things have happened almost every day: Snap pops up to say Firefox has an update pending, and it wants to be closed and restarted; and tabs crash, and the only way to make them stop crashing is to restart Firefox or restart the OS.

I suspect the two problems are linked, and I really have to ask: do we have to have an update every 36 hours? Microsoft mostly gets by with one update cycle per week. I like to use software, not update it. I know it has to get updated regularly, but regularly shouldn't be the same as constantly.

Environment is: Firefox 106.0.5 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002 - 1.0 Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS (64-bit) GNOME version 42.5 Wayland windowing system

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
