osx lion two finger swipe to scroll between pages does not work

Posted

Just upgraded to Mac OS X Lion which has changed some touch pad features. Scrolling left/right between web pages with two fingers does not work. I can scroll up & down but not left & right.

Also the up/down scroll within a window on a web page also does not work. The entire page scrolls up/down, but not the page within the window.

If Firefox can fix the side to side swipe and become a full-screen app it would become the best browser by far for Lion.

Here we are on beta 9 and still no 2 finger swipe. I can't recall seeing such a popular open source project as this self destruct. Chrome has had this and lots more for months now. Absolutely ridiculous.

The bug says its fixed in FF 9. Don't see any changes - still doesn't work. I am on the latest FF 9 beta channel.
