Zotero link on snap

Steps to reproduce

create an .md file pointing to a pdf document in Zotero with the syntax [doc](zotero://open-pdf/library/items/docref) and click on it.

Expected result

open the desired pdf through Zotero.

Actual result

After the first confirmation to open the link with Zotero, it does nothing.

Additional information

The issue is present ONLY on snap, the AppImage works fine out of the box.
I followed the mimeapps hack for the association of Zotero with the pdf app.
The issue has been partly discussed here, but the solution is on the Zotero side, which is not my case.

This is likely a permission issue you need to fix. Moved to help.
