How to disable gestures in Firefox on Android?

Dear Mozilla Support,

I'm using an android tablet in online teaching, presenting PDF documents via BigBlueButton (in case that the application matters). I had issues with the Chrome browser, because very often when writing manual notes on the PDF, BBB lost connection with the pen (although the browser still reacted to the pen).

I found that Firefox worked much better, i.e., the pen-related incompatibility between BBB and Chrome has never occurred with Firefox. Thank you for that!

However, after upgrading the tablet a few days ago, a very annoying problem occurs in Firefox: It now tries to understand "gestures". The consequence: When I present a PDF file, that I turn to landscape full screen on the tablet, and try to write on the left half of the PDF file, Firefox apparently interprets my handwriting as gestures and thus keeps switching tabs. It already gave me several angry fits during my lectures.

The local support at my university told me that gestures could in the past be disabled via "about:config", but alas, the new firefox version does not allow to open "about:config".

I believe it is two bad choices of the Firefox developers to use gestures by default and to prevent the user from changing the default. But criticism aside: How can I solve the problem, or at least work around the problem? The local support told me that using the nightly build might be a solution. Would it? If yes, how to obtain it?

Best regards, Simon

My favorite add-ons aren't available with this newest version. I while ago I had prevented the update so that I could help using them. Now I've gotten a new ANDROID device and I don't know what version I need. I do know that I was able to look for add-ons unlike this version that appears to just show me some I can pick if I want, but there's no add-on browsing page likes there was.

Hello, as you can see for a long time in the night version there is an opportunity to add your own additions through the collection. In the release release, too, appeared in the hidden menu the ability to enable it, through clicks on the version and activation in the hidden menu. But after activation, nothing appears, that is, there is no way to add your collection. Tell me if there is a way to make the collection of add-ons appear on the release release of the android
