I noticed these as well, I think these failures are probably there since these tests have been added. My suspicions is CSS animations, in the Gutenberg tests relying on the same helpers, there's no flakiness, but there are two extra things done on the Gutenberg e2e setup:

All of these failures are happening in the publishPost function imported from the e2e-test-utils package. What's interesting is that function is used in most of the tests from that suite and only one of them is consistently failing: shows a single post after one is published with the correct title (though allows an existing post to be deleted using the Trash button also failed in one of those runs).

This happens very randomly (at least on local env). I've run the test up to 20 times, for i in {1..20}; do npm run test:e2e -- tests/e2e/specs/edit-posts.test.js; done and had only one failure.

@isabel_brison in the publishPost() function, could we wait for the content in the body panel instead of the snack bar? See
