I've heard of similar issues with Snap apps off and on. One easy alternative is to use Flatpak apps from Flathub when apps exist in both places.
To install an app from Flathub:
- Visit the app's page on Flathub
- Click the Install button on the web page
- Depending on your browser, Sideload may open automatically. If not, choose to open the downloaded file with Sideload.
- Read and agree to the implications of installing an untrusted app from Flatpak.
If this is the first Flatpak app you've installed, it might not show up in the Applications Menu until you log out and back in—future Flatpak apps will show up instantly. You can then uninstall the snap version.
It's typically recommended to use Flatpak apps on elementary OS instead of snap because elementary has officially backed Flatpak, elementary OS supports Flatpak out of the box, and elementary developers have put significant work into making sure it's easy to install and update Flatpak apps without having to use a Terminal.
