    Question Three-Finger Swipe in Firefox on OSX?
    Are there any firefox add-ons/extensions that add the three-finger swipe (back and forward in browsing)? Two-finger scrolling works well for me...

    Ive heard that "multiclutch" does it, but i would rather a real firefox extension, not an additional program running...

    I just got my first macbook pro 15" unibody and i would LOVE to use my favorite browser with all of the features of OSX...

    Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Hi,
    I don't know a plugin to do that but MutliClutch works just fine ! If you install a plugin to FF it is also an additional software running.

    The advantage of MultiClutch is that you can use it for any app of your OSX.

    cheers,
    Tex

    I set those shortcut as "global" (i.e. for any application)
    Code:
    Swipe left = cmd+left = Back
    Swipe right = cmd+right = Forward
    Swipe down = cmd+w = close tab
    + those ones for firefox
    Code:
    Zoom in = cmd+r = reload
    Swipe up = cmd+t = new tab
    enjoy

    FYI everyone, Firefox came out with a 3.1 beta that supposedly includes macbook finger gesture functionality. I just heard about it, and being at work, i cannot try it until i get home. But in case someone else wants to, here is the link: Firefox web browser | International versions: Get Firefox in your language

    pman555, Firefox 3.5 includes support for gestures. If you open about:config and search for browser.gesture, you will find the items that relate to this. Swipe left and right can be set to forward/backward, and you can create a new string (eg browser.gesture.swipe.up) to do other actions.
