If Firefox is working, you should be good to leave as it is..
If Firefox is not working then you can try the remove/install commands.

Try the following...

Code: [Select]
sudo snap remove firefox


this may take some time and you'll see disconnects in the terminal. Let it complete..

THEN

Code: [Select]
sudo snap install firefox

should see firefox installed
in 'snap changes' should see a remove and install.... Do a full reboot (FF will not show in menu until).

however i open today its work :3

Code: [Select]

.... or should i re installed?

Not yet, looks like gnome-3-38-2004 is missing....

try the following command...
Code: [Select]
sudo snap install gnome-3-38-2004

May not hurt to do a full reboot after not just a log off..

i try restart, shutdown, reinstall ff but no open yet

That looks like a snaps error message.    I'd suggest running the command

Code: [Select]
snap list
and posting it here just to see what it says, but I don't know enough about snaps to be any help - sorry.

Hopefully someone else can advise on next steps.

I installed FF into my VM from Lite Software and Rebooted it launched for me.
I did however recently run Lite Updates - you may want to try.. Also the snap list and snap changes commands may help too..

Can you open a terminal by pressing the three keys  'Ctrl' 'Alt' and 't' at the same time.

In the terminal session that opens up at your username prompt type

Code: [Select]
firefox
followed by enter.  This should open a firefox window and give you your username prompt back.  If it doesn't let us know what happens, especially
if anything is shown in the terminal session, copy and paste it back here.

Code: [Select]
ERROR: not connected to the gnome-3-38-2004 content interface.

If you installed Firefox on Linux Lite version 6.0 via Lite Software, I think you have to reboot before Firefox will appear in the menu.

Can you provide more details on how you are trying to open firefox and what happens please.
