Bug Description

When you first install the Snap, the first time you try to open or save or export a file it should have the Home or Documents folder open, but instead it has the ~/snap/libreoffice/17 (or other revision) folder open, which is not what the user will want. Also the My Documents shortcut on the left points to ~/snap/libreoffice/17 rather than ~/documents

This can be trivially fixed by making the snap use classic confinement, which I'm planning to do for the 5.3.3 release.

Not going to make it a classic snap after all, so this will need to be revisited.

Is this related to the fact that I can't access disk folders outside of snap folder, I guess due to sandboxing? This is a very undesirable behavior from the office user perspective.
