Try these gestures:

  • browser.gesture.twist.right -> Browser:NextTab
  • browser.gesture.twist.left -> Browser:PrevTab
Try these gestures: * browser.gesture.twist.right -> <b>Browser:NextTab</b> * browser.gesture.twist.left -> <b>Browser:PrevTab</b>

I fixed that to switch tabs, but i'm wondering how to go back a page or forward instead of clicking back/forward or command-left/right or command-[ & ]

You should be able to use these to go back and forward:

  • browser.gesture.swipe.left -> Browser:BackOrBackDuplicate or Browser:Back
  • browser.gesture.swipe.right -> Browser:ForwardOrForwardDuplicate or Browser:Forward
You should be able to use these to go back and forward: * browser.gesture.swipe.left -> <b>Browser:BackOrBackDuplicate</b> or Browser:Back * browser.gesture.swipe.right -> <b>Browser:ForwardOrForwardDuplicate</b> or Browser:Forward

I tried both but I still can't swipe back/forward pages. Is it just a gesture that is no longer available? I'm doing two-finger swipes left/right.
