I've previously used Firefox in a Ubuntu 16.04 system (upgraded from the 14.04) without any problems. However, I recently did a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 in a different disk and wanted to use Firefox as my browser, but I have two problems:
If I use the default repository's Firefox (
sudo apt-get install firefox), I cannot use the bookmarks toolbar. Let me be clear: the issue is not that it isn't visible, but that it does not appear under View>Toolbars or in the Customize window (in both cases, the "Toolbars" menu is empty)
If I snap-install Firefox (
sudo snap install firefox), everything works perfectly fine, but I cannot access to data in other disks or disk partitions in my computer. For example, when I try to upload an email with a file in a different disk or partition, it says it has no permissions to do so.
Solving any of these problems would be very helpful. In particular (because it may be easier to answer), is it possible to grant a snap application the permission to access to other partitions of the disk? Or the whole purpose of the snap packages is that precisely this is not possible, and there is no way around it?
