Firefox snap is unable to access chrome gnome shell connector


The Firefox snap is unable to install extensions off as it it can’t detect the presence of chrome gnome shell connector though the package is installed and works perfectly with the deb version. I had earlier reported the same issue with the Chromium snap. Chrome Gnome Shell does not work with Chromium snap

This is failing even earlier for me: when installing the browser extension, I get the following error message:

GNOME Shell integration could not be installed because it is not compatible with Firefox 59.0.1.

And note that for the chromium snap the issue is tracked by bug #1741074. It is likely the same root cause for the firefox snap.

I asked this same question on No replies there either yet. Just linking the two up.
