Did meek and Snowflake ever work for you? How long ago?

For Snowflake, please try the experimental packages at https://people.torproject.org/~dcf/pt-bundle/tor-browser-snowflake-turbotunnel-9.5a11-20200410/. See comment:7:ticket:33745.

I think meek-azure worked briefly in the last alpha version, but not snowflake, never been able to get it to connect.

The snowflake links you posted to the same alpha version I'm using:
9.5a11 (based on Mozilla Firefox 68.7.0esr) (64-bit)

Does not connect via snowflake.(Waited over 5mins to connect, many times)

This is not the same 9.5a11 you tried. The "turbotunnel" in the package name means these are special packages for testing a change to Snowflake that makes it more reliable. This package may work for you even if current alphas do not. Depending on what kind of NAT you have, you may have to wait several minutes for it to work the first time, but after that it should be more smooth. More information: #33745, #33666, https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-talk/2020-April/045563.html.

meek is known to be slow because the default bridge is overloaded. Unfortunately there is not much we can do about that.
