Missing applications and features

Hello. I am an Ubuntu user and I am slowly migrating my applications from snap to flatpak.
The applications that I miss to migrate completely are: The various browsers (Firefox, Brave, Chromium, Opera), qelectrotech.
The functionality that I lack is to be able to remove permissions to applications, for example in Opera, Firefox browsers, I like to remove permission for the home user (the home of the application resides on /snap/APP/) and I do it comfortably from the software GNOME center or discover on KDE.
Thanks to anyone who will take the time to answer me.

Hi,

About removing permissions to applications, see: Flatpak permissions GUI?
bu it can also be done via command line: https://docs.flatpak.org/en/latest/flatpak-command-reference.html (search here for “permission”)

For a Firefox flatpak there’s this thread: Firefox Flatpak Request
and Mozilla is working on it, see for example bugzilla bugs 1441922 and 1591387.
Request thread for Chromium: Chromium Flatpak Request
No idea about the other browsers or qelectrotech.

Hi, I’ve been working on a qelectrotech flatpak for some time, upstream is aware and interested in it.

I have something working which I need to send upstream when I find the time.
