Bug Description

I recently updated to Ubuntu mate 21.10, from 21.04. I am unable to browse the web, using the snap version of firefox, provided by default in this release. With Orca running, launch firefox, and it will report inaccessible. I have another 21.10 machine where I have removed the snap version, and it works as expected using the .deb package.
