    Shouldn't a poll like this be pinned at least for awhile, as people respond, so we can find it quickly?

        Unsurprisingly, I don't even have that Add to Bookmarks icon -- that leftmost icon your red arrow points at. I do have all the other icons in that list, from left to right. I am looking at the OP.

          Hmm. Let me look into that.

          You should see it. My Bookmarks is a MOD that is available to Administrators and those with Paid Subscriptions. You have a Paid Subscription, so...

          Do you mind if I 'log in as you' so I can see what you see?

                I was tempted to chose the last option.

                  I feel your pain but easy enough to remove snap and be done with it.

                    Depending on what the three options in the installer will do when they work, removing Snap could be as "painless" as in 22.04 LTS…

                    And there still are scripts for people who don't want to do this "manually" or who want to use the "traditional" Firefox and Thunderbird additionally to or instead of the Snaps in 24.04 LTS.

                      I would like to install sometime after 24.04 hits the streets, but only if recent XZ and time thingies are fixed and there are few worries expressed in the forum.

                        I have to agree with the sentiment expressed against the use of SNAP. I'm not enjoying the need to jump through hoops...

                            I have already changed last year to Open Suse tumbleweed because of this Snap nonsense but in the context that is just the latest in a long line of silly Canonical ideas. One day I expect they will drop it and then think up some new silly idea. Tumbleweed is nice, the K is more important than the ubuntu to me anyway. So I now have the latest Plasma and BTRFS by default with regular automatic snapshots set up . Something I was always too lazy to set up properly before.

                              I also love and use openSUSE Tumbleweed, but I would never install it on a production system - automatic Btrfs snapper snapshots or not…

                              Indeed, Canonical has made some controversial decisions over the years to say the least. But they are a company and Ubuntu is their distribution and they can do with it as they please.
                              And as long as it is still possible to change the things I don't like (and I just have to run two or three scripts…) I am quite fine with it (sometimes I am quite annoyed too, of course).
