Firstly: it is 2022. Why does Firefox still force a restart after an update?

Secondly: Since when were those delivered by Mozilla themselves and no longer through apt/dpkg? This is the third time I had to restart Firefox at the most inconvenient time.

@Pixdigit for the latter: ubuntu switched to using snap for firefox as of 21.10


@pcy I use mint without snap for precisely that reason. Though it appears mint does something weird with firefox.

nvm: I found out that mint comes with automatic updates for all packages enabled. I probably would never have noticed if Firefox wouldn't behave so badly.
