    .....Until you get hefty bill because snap downloaded massive updates without any asking.

    Firefox snap has been reported as the default in Ubuntu 21.10, but in the just released beta (on Fri. the 24th), both the .deb and snap are installed by default. This may not be the case in the final release. Only the snap initially shows in the dock, so unless you look further at all applications, you would not see the other.

    It is easy to uninstall the firefox snap and then just grab the tarball from Mozilla. Moreover I am sure there will be a ppa by 22.04 since debian will not likely switch to snap so deb version will be there

    I think snap is kind of clunky sometimes. But, I got Discord using snaps.
