I find when I am browsing on Firefox and swipe down on my Macbook trackpad, the browser often interprets even a slightly leftward slant as a command to go back a page. Is there a way to disable the swipe left/previous page function or to make it less sensitive?

Firefox 94.0.2 on Macbook Air 13-inch Early 2015 with MacOS 11.6.1

Thanks!
