I've recently started using Firefox on my Mac and while it seems to work well the problem is that there seems to be this feature that "back pages" or "forward pages" when I make a two finger motions even slightly right or left on my track pad. Is there any way to turn this off. It seems way too sensitive and I'm constantly going back one or two pages when I don't mean to.

How do I turn this off?

Yup. Same problem here. I only use it if I'm using a mouse instead of the TP.

I would stick with Safari but the problem is that the firewall at the University I work at has problems with secure pages on Safari. My Mac-savy IT guys just said that the best thing to do is to use Firefox.

Maybe I'll see if the Firefox site has a fix.

Hey! I found it on the Firefox forum. Here's how to stop it.

This solves the scrolling issue:
In Firefox, type "about:config" in the address bar. Look for these fields and change them to these values:

mousewheel.horizscroll.withnokey.action to 0

This stops the problem without having to turn off all of your side scrolling.
QUOTE Thanks
