How to enable two finger swipe like in chrome

more options

Hello! I am trying to enable the swipe action for page forward and page back like I can do in chrome. I have looked around and there is a few invasive plugins to achieve this but otherwise nothing. I am trying to switch over from chrome but this shortcut is important to expedite my workflow. Any help is appreciated.

There are browser.gesture pref that set some gesture actions.

  • browser.gesture.swipe.left = Browser:BackOrBackDuplicate
  • browser.gesture.swipe.right = Browser:ForwardOrForwardDuplicate

Looking at these prefs I would expect this to work.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
