Can't Download Any File from Mozilla Firefox (Ubuntu 22.04.1)

Hi!

I have encountered this really annoying problem on my Firefox app. I give details below. I installed Mozilla Firefox on my freshly installed Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. I tried installing it from Snap Store. However, when I tried saving an image from the web (or, truthfully, any other file chosen by the "Save As..." selection), nothing happened, again and again. I tried many things, including following relevant guides from the internet, but nothing changed. The Firefox version is the 107.0.1 (64-bit), a Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002- 1.0. I, also, have to report some other things, as well. When tried installing the browser from the internet (I downloaded a compressed file, containing the executable), the same function seemed to work. I, now, use the executable to access Firefox. However, firstly, because other difficulties (not problems, but difficulties) arise and, secondly, because I'd really like ti use, mostly, snaps, I report this bug here requesting for help, as well.

Any helpful answer will be appreciated!

Thank you!

I see it's a snap issue and not Firefox from Mozilla.

I see... Thank you for the information! Are they going to fix it any time soon?

You can check for issues with "xdg-desktop-portal" and possibly install some packages like xdg-desktop-portal and xdg-desktop-portal-gtk Whether to use gtk portal for the file picker. 0:never 1:always 2:auto (true for flatpak or GTK_USE_PORTAL=1, false otherwise)

  • about:config => widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.file-picker = 0
