Perhaps but given it messed up slack as well I suspect there is something fundamental I have to fix and I’m wondering what’s the next thing that I want to click on that doesn’t work. 1-Click, slack then ??? so I need to figure this out.
I’m so concerned now. I tried magnets (torrents) and they worked so it’s not a fundamental problem with FireFox and all extension, just that the first two I tried had problems.
I was able to solve the slack problem by using the version of slack in snapd instead of the official download. Even that one wasn’t perfect but it was good enough to be able to workaround and log in and in the speil about it they noted that it was in beta and not everything is working correctly so that explains that.
Now that I know it’s just an isolated issue and not something fundamental, I can live without the the 1-click install so unless someone just happens to know what could be the issue I’m happy to just drop this and live without it.
You can search for packages online, but don’t click on any 1-click link. Instead, use the name of whatever package you searched to produce the 1-click link, then use opi with that package name to install, e.g. sudo opi slack. man opi
