[Bug 2000258] [NEW] Pending update of Firefox snap popup is very annoying and gives not obvious way of dealing with it.

Public bug reported:

For two weeks a popup keeps showing up saying: 
Pending update of "firefox"snap
Close the app to avoid disruption (* days left)

There is no obvious way to deal with this. Clicking on the dialog does
not do the update. Doing some regular software update does not.
Canceling it with the close button just means it will come back several
more times a day and it obscures parts of the desktop that are useful. I
can see giving a 5 minute warning but two weeks with no way to get it to
go ahead? Put an update button in the popup or something.
