Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla, unzip it, and run firefox-bin it from the folder. It's a good idea to have a separate version with your Distro version. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

To install with Snap look at this. https://vitux.com/4-ways-to-install-mozilla-firefox-in-ubuntu/

Hmm there are threads like https://stackoverflow.com/questions/784404/how-can-i-specify-a-display

The minimal system requirements you need to run Firefox is at https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/103.0/system-requirements/

Firefox will not run at all without the following libraries or packages: glibc 2.17 or higher GTK+ 3.14 or higher libstdc++ 4.8.1 or higher X.Org 1.0 or higher (1.7 or higher is recommended) For optimal functionality, we recommend the following libraries or packages: DBus 1.0 or higher GNOME 2.16 or higher libxtst 1.2.3 or higher NetworkManager 0.7 or higher PulseAudio

FFmpeg is also another package to install to have the codecs needed to full HTML5 player support to play video, audio and games.

As per the firefox requirements,

    Firefox will not run at all without the following libraries or packages:
       glibc 2.17 or higher
       GTK+ 3.14 or higher
        libstdc++ 4.8.1 or higher
        X.Org 1.0 or higher (1.7 or higher is recommended)

Ubuntu Core has the mir-kiosk/ ubuntu-frame to display the UI. In the snap store I couldn't find the X.Org package. I can run the wpe-webkit in ubuntu core without any issue.

Would you please confirm, Will Firefox works in ubuntu core? If Yes, Any steps/pre-condition specific to Ubuntu Core 22
