The snap is working. Bookmarks are there along with stored username and passwords.
What is NOT working is access to file partitions other than ~HOME, which completely breaks my workflow. Have had to resort to Firefox, which is fine, but I run both routinely.
I have control of my computer and, frankly, resent being “reigned” in. Better is to let me do what I want without restrictions.
Apparently there is a workaround to install the snap with a
--classic switch. I have not tried it.
