On Wednesday, Apple release the new OS X Lion and there are now Multi Touch gestures using the trackpad. I am able to use those gestures in Safari, but I was wondering if there is a way I can use the multi-touch gestures in Firefox.

This appears to be a problem firefox are aware of and are working on, and with some possible workarounds, see also thread: "Back/Forward Gestures do not work in Mac OS X Lion" -> /questions/853020

Hello to all!

I found a workaround this a free software called BetterTouchTool for mac, it is upgraded for lion and it also adds the snapping tool to split the windows. (as in Windows 7) To make it work just go to Preferences by clicking the bar icon and on the left you will see a panel where you need to add an application, in this case Firefox. Then on the bottom, you can add gestures, just look around and you will find what it fits for you. I chose Two Finger Swipe Left and its action 3F Swipe Right (Page Forward) than Two Finger Swipe Right and its action 3F Swipe Left (Page Back). It does not work really smooth but , well.

Long Life to CHILE!!
