Snap refresh should show a dialog asking to close the app

Snaps apps don’t ask for permission to close your app when an update runs. I was in the middle of something when my firefox updated and just closed all my tabs.
Maybe a dialog box asking to close the for update (with an option to postpone) would be great

I think you’re describing (part of) refresh app awareness.

For what I understood (and with the test I’ve made just now) if the app is opened the application doesn’t download at all
$ sudo snap set core experimental.refresh-app-awareness=true

$ sudo snap refresh libreoffice
$ error: cannot refresh "libreoffice": snap "libreoffice" has running apps

noticed one bug on the process.
If you open the app after the download has started your app still gets closed
