Question owner

So should I replace the

  • browser.gesture.swipe.left -> Browser:BackOrBackDuplicate
  • browser.gesture.swipe.right -> Browser:ForwardOrForwardDuplicate

with....

  • browser.gesture.swipe.left.shift -> Browser:PrevTab
  • browser.gesture.swipe.right.shift -> Browser:NextTab

or... Create a new "string" (Pref. Name)?

The name of the pref tells which gesture to use, so you can change/set the action of that pref accordingly.
You can set different actions for swipe left and swipe left while holding down the Shift key.
