    Where does the Signal snap application keep its configuration?

    An issue with Signal, installed via snap on Ubuntu Mate 16.04, is that the "Preferences" popup window is very unresponsive. It comes up first as a blank white box until you either let several minutes pass or overlap another window onto Signal. Then even when the preferences are displayed, the window is very sluggish to respond and it is very difficult to set the various options. I was thinking that it might be easier to directly edit the config file, assuming it has a text config file somewhere. (SIgnal works fine otherwise, aside from apparently not working with X11 forwarding. I posted separately about that issue.) Anyone know if such a config file exists for the snap version of Signal and where it is located?

    There should be a snap folder in /home & /. Do not know where other files are stored relating to snap packaged apps.

    Keep in mind that 16.04 is scheduled to reach end of life this month.

    Edit: From your other thread I see you already know.
