The Firefox and Slack snap packages can not read or write cifs mounted files. The Sublime snap package can read/write files to cifs shares as well as Caja on the desktop. This was working with 18.04, but not with 22.10.
- FireFox, Slack, and Sublime do not present a "Permissions" button in the software center
- from the command line, Firefox has all permissions, including portable devices.
Per this article, I changed my CIFS mount from /home/erik/map/folder to /mnt/folder and moved my credentials from /home/erik/.credentials to /etc/cifs_creds. Once I rebooted, I was able to open files from CIFS in FireFox and Slack. The share was no longer listed in Caja in the devices section.
I can only assume the permission system in the snap daemon no longer recognizes user level cifs mount settings. Is there a way to work around this or is this the only way to mount shares going forward?
