I would need some help immediately. I upgraded Chromium with snap which I do not do so regularly. I use Ubuntu with serveral users that have separately encrypted home directories. After a while I started Chromium and for at least one user the application was reset to a state from one year ago. All history and tabs are gone. Even Chrome plugins appeared that were removed a long time ago. Last time when that happened and I tried to disable snap, there was some backup under ~/snap/chromium. But now I cannot find out how to restore Chromium’s current user settings.
What is the way to undo snap’s actions? Is there a better way than to guess which number is the correct directory name under ~/snap/chromium that Chromium currently uses and then move another directory to that path? “mv 1119 1382” did not change anything this time.
Where are my settings being saved? In the numbered directories or under “common/” I cannot find them.
What does snap do when an upgrade has taken place? Does it erase/change the user directory, when a package is being started as the user for the first time after the upgrade?
I never installed snap myself so surprisingly Ubuntu has added experimental unstable software to LTS and I am having a lot of troubles with this at each upgrade.
Thank you and best wishes
