I have a laptop with Ubuntu 22.04. Firefox 307 from deb package works perfect. I wanted to give a try to Flatpak variant 306, which works well too, except two finger gestures back and front won't work. Scroll works. Any scheduled fix for that? Would be cool to move to flatpack completely.

You should ask the Flatpak folks. https://discourse.flathub.org/categories

You can possibly check the browser.gesture.* prefs on the about:config page.

I did, the gestures set to Browser:BackOrBackDuplicate, ForwardOrForwardDuplicate

Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla, run firefox-bin from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release
