Hi. After upgrading Ubuntu (20.04 -> 22.04), some of packages, and first of all Firefox (whose default package manager was forcedly replaced from apt to snap in the new Ubuntu) get problems with permission rights. For example, I cannot save any downloaded files from Firefox in any directory. Also, I cannot install new extensions (although my settings and extensions from the previous installation have been kept) or cannot choose Firefox as the default browser. Similarly, in telegram-desktop and chrome I cannot upload/download files from default ~/Downloads (although other directories are accessible for these snaps, unlike Firefox). If I create a new system user which did not exist in my system before the upgrade, everything though works ok for that user. Please help
Can you provide the output of
snap connections firefox ?
Hi, yes sure.

The interfaces appear to be connected. Perhaps it’s something with portals again. Maybe @oSoMoN has some ideas.
