Hello, i am fairly new to linux and am drinking from a fire hose at the moment so please bear with me. I purchased Zorin Pro desperately wanting to get away from MS and have already broken it twice and reinstalled which i understand is bound to happen being so new. My slow boot issue lead me to this thread where i am also experiencing the same symptom as the O.P. with my Chrome browser. I really try to fix it myself before i ask for help but am at a loss here. So one problem at a time. I have
checked to see if it is the same problem by launching Chrome in terminal. My issue appears to be a bit different as i do not have any Snap packages installed. After opening terminal and launching Chrome this is my output.

Here is info on my hardware. 1TB HDD (i know that doesn't help). I have Zorin on an Asus Notebook Q304U with 6GB Ram. I installed Zorin after using Gparted to delete all partitions on the drive then set up the partitions in gparted for the Zorin install with a Swap partition instead of a swap file. Any help with the browser issue would be greatly appreciated, i will try to tackle the slow boot thing afterwards. Thank you in advance !
