Old Androids Never Die, They Just Have A Few Screws Loose


September 17, 2021

Oh Firefox. Oh, my sweet summer child, this will probably kill you.

My anger is palpable and my disappointment immeasurable.

Snaps suck. They are slow to load, hard to manage, have exactly zero GUI apps for handling them, and to top it off, the second keystroke in every snap I've ever tried to use gets delayed 10-15 seconds. They're useless and nobody needed yet-another-package-type.

On the bright side, Chrome installs a .deb and doesn't require any snaps at all, so I have somewhere to switch to that doesn't suck.

Ubuntu 21.10 is making the Firefox Snap app its default browser. A feature-freeze exception requests the Firefox Snap be seeded in the Ubuntu ISO image.
