Firefox for Android gesture support

Please add gesture support for the switch tab icon. Pull down for page refresh, swipe left to go back, swipe right to go forward. Maybe even swipe up for bookmark, and hold (long press) for the share menu.

It's much faster than clicking the menu, waiting for it to appear, scrolling up if you had previously scrolled down, then clicking on refresh. Much better than some browsers which try to gesture on the entire page which can be unreliable because it competes with the scrolling.

The tab icon is just sitting there, off the page, with so much potential to be useful. And Firefox for Android is in desperate need of a faster way to navigate. Especially refresh.

Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate it.

Whilst this may not be a feature at present, it is something that may be considered for inclusion in a future update of Firefox for Android.
