Firefox 4.0b7 – revert three finger swipe behaviour back to page up/down

I didn’t notice the change at first because although firefox is my main browser, I was using Chrome/Safari quite a bit in the last couple of weeks, and there’s no three finger swipe for page up or down. How is one supposed to read Engadget without page scrolling? *rolleyes*

But luckily that change was documented and can be reverted easily! Go to about:config in your awesomebar and search for browser.gesture.swipe. Change the values for

  • browser.gesture.swipe.up to cmd_scrollTop
  • browser.gesture.swipe.down to cmd_scrollBottom

and keep on swiping! 😉
That’s all folks…
