    Firefox 4 pinch zoom disabled
    Should I do the fix or just go back to older firefox...does the fix make it work exactly as it did before? Anybody tried it?

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    Believe it or not I've run into many of these issues with the new firefox.. here's what ya do..


    • open a new tab.
    • type 'about:config' and press enter.
    • type pinch in the search field and press enter.
    • change the values for the pinch.in and pinch.out to the following:

    for browser.gesture.pinch.in cmd_fullZoomReduce
    for browser.gesture.pinch.in.shift cmd_fullZoomReset
    for browser.gesture.pinch.out cmd_fullZoomEnlarge
    for browser.gesture.pinch.out.shift cmd_fullZoomReset

    Did the fix a few months ago. Quick and painless. Not sure why they took out the ability from FF, something about compatibility with some patch... I had to go the Firefox forum to find out about putting back the zoom in/out gesture.
