    Ok then how do I install quantum without using the snap or alternatively where do I report the bug in the snap?

    You should already have Ubuntu's regular non-snap firefox installed as that is the default on Ubuntu.
    And it's quantum for all currently supported Ubuntu releases.
    If you search firefox in Ubuntu's menu (press the super key to invoke the menu) does it list two firefox?

    If I install one with apt it gets me the non-quantum but I can open hidden files. If I do the one with snap it gives me quantum but cant view hidden files. I want quantum WITH hidden files.

    Where does it tell you it's not Firefox Quantum?
    All Ubuntu's versions are quantum now.

    Most if not all snaps are denied access to . folders & probably . files.
    If not happy with that but still wanting to use such snaps then try removing & then installing with the --classic option.
    ex. ff
    sudo snap remove firefox
    sudo snap install firefox --classic
