With Ubuntu now shipping Firefox Snap as the default, would you consider releasing an updated article on the security and privacy of Snap vs Flatpak versions?


Using LM 21.1, I tried flatpak Firefox and it worked very well, but the downside was that I couldn't resolve LAN DNS (I believe this is down to the sand-boxing) so I tried the snap Firefox and that seems to work equally and in addition, I can now access LAN DNS. I'd tend to go with the flatpak version as I really do love security, but I use LAN DNS to access local devices several times per day and it was just too much of a hassle to lose it, so I'll stick with the snap variant. :-)
