For security reasons, I run Firefox under a separate user account rather than my main account. That user is not configured to start snap programs, so if snap Firefox is installed, Firefox cannot start at all.
So I always want to use the Firefox via apt.
I have followed the steps from How to install Firefox as a traditional deb package (without snap) in Ubuntu 22.04 or later versions? to install apt Firefox. That installs Firefox from apt and it works fine.
But after every update, the snap Firefox is installed again. Then I have to uninstall the snap and install the apt version again. I want to kill it off permanently
I have done the steps from Completely remove firefox snap package (
snap disable firefox && sudo snap remove --purge firefox) but they do not help and the snap keeps coming back.
$ apt policy firefox
