I'm following a tutorial to install cinnamon desktop which includes Firefox snap on my Ubuntu LXD container, but the installation with snap fails. Does anyone know why it happens and how to fix it?

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

Your issue appears to be with the snap version, so you will need to post your question here. https://forum.snapcraft.io/

Thanks, I posted my question there.

As I don't have the display yet, I can't run the firefox-bin. Is there a way to install it so it would be integrated as 'firefox' package?
