Firefox came preinstalled as snap package on ubuntu 18.04, but has been giving trouble since

I'm running through problems when downloading files:


   The open with dialog application does not see most applications, in particular it doesn't see evince nor libreoffice. The dropdown defaults to "Url Handler Script (default)", which does nothing with my files.
If I choose to open the file with firefox (say a pdf file) a blank page appears

All these options work with chrome though..

The only way I can view a downloadable file is by saving it somewhere in my home directory and then open it which is a pain!


Obviously snap firefox doesn't access anything beyond thatI've successfully installed Firefox as a snap package (done by default by installing it through Ubuntu's "software center"). It does work, and give me a more recent version of Firefox than the one available through APT.

I'm running through problems when downloading files, though:

   Saving them in /tmp/ does not work, since the snap version of Firefox uses a different filesystem than the one of the host computer, hence Firefox and non-snap applications see different content in /tmp/.
   The open with dialog application does not see most applications, in particular it doesn't see evince nor libreoffice, which I've installed through APT. The dropdown defaults to "Url Handler Script (default)", which apparently does nothing with my files.
   If I save a downloaded file, the open containing folder button in the downloads list does not work. I'm guessing that it tries to open nautilus, but fails to do so because nautilus is a non-snap application.I've successfully installed Firefox as a snap package (done by default by installing it through Ubuntu's "software center").

Test post by a moderator looking at workflow in AAQ in prod.

Contributors please do not answer this post. I will add a link to the relevant discussion later.

Noting

  • I did not actaully hit the 800 charlimit, or if I did it posted
  • I still am able to edit after posting, including TS comments. Not sure an ordinary user can do that
  • User editing apparently has a problem
    • TS information additional comments are lost if posting from [Showdetails >>]
    • If posting from prior TS page any Installed plugin edits are lost
  • The "Guess" showed only 4 of my 6 ask to activate plugins
  • My deactivated plugins do not display, by contrast deactivated extensions do display
  • System info not user friendly in this instance, was that due to my edits ?
    I will repeat as a straight question with no edits.

N.B. Trying here as opposed to alizom as I wanted to be certain what a user sees. I will use someone eles's email address to set up an ordinary user account first.

  • Yes editing information messes up the display.
  • Ordinary users still have opportunity to edit TS & Installed plugins afterwards but that easily messes up the display.

This is more a comment than a question.

For various reasons (usually asthetics, sometimes for small screens) one trend in user interface design is to hide everything. The other is to make asthetics win over usability.

Please don't hide everything. Make it hidden if necessary on small screens but not on the high-res screen I bought so I can show every toolbar I need to work efficiently.

Second, if you want to put the refresh button way, way over on the right side, away from all the other most-used buttons (back, forward), then please give us the ability to move it back and make it more efficient again. Also allow us to put those most used buttons on the far left (back, forward, refresh, home), which requires less mouse accuracy to find. They don't have to be next to the URL bar.

I'll go use the legacy plug-in to fix it, but it's sad that trying to work efficiently isn't a valuable design criteria anymore.

Thanks for a great product. I installed a metallic flavored browser while going through the problems of heartbleed and now things crash way more--a problem I never had with just firefox.

This is more of an observation (rather than a question) that IMO would require some attention from Mozilla as this (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/987165) seems to answer the issue. .. But since that can't be commented on I'll add that what (to my view) is missing is a simple "Register to Mozilla support" link on the main page -- or/and the Signin page. That's what one sees on pretty much all similar websites/services and that's what one would expect here. The current logic is a bit weird: Ask a question or Become a contributor didn't pull me in. And since the above linked question shows that I'm not the only one I'm sure there are many more confused users.

Accidentally or after upgrade (I did not notice) I got bookmarks side bar at right part of FF window. Instead of default left side, where it was before.

How can I get bookmarks sidebar back to the left side? Where it is placed by default in other installations of FF.

Thank you.

P.S. I saw several answers about Ctrl+B. It is not the case. I can hide it and bring back. But I need it at left side instead of current location.
