Any way to enable 2-finger swipe (L/R) (Back/Forward) gestures?

Important note:
The Mac OSX version of Pale Moon is provided by various people and is not official or in any way organized at this moment. Your assistance in bringing this build to fruition is greatly appreciated, but you can expect there to be bugs and problems as long as we don't have a maintainer or official builds!

Any specific bugs you find that don't have their own topic yet: please make a new topic; one bug per topic please to keep things organized.

Please also note that these builds are currently created by various independent Mac OS X people and not by our core team; core devs will likely not be able to provide insight or assistance due to lack of Mac hardware and OS/build knowledge for Mac. You'll have to solve the issues among yourselves.

Any way to enable 2-finger swipe (L/R) (Back/Forward) gestures?

Post by frykauf » 2020-05-25, 23:34

Hello,

I'm quite a new fan of Pale Moon, but the feature that breaks the experience for me a bit is that the 2-finger swipe for going back/forward (browser.gesture.swipe.left / browser.gesture.swipe.right) doesn't work for me.

I'm on Catalina/Macbook Air old/New Moon build 28.9.3 .

I'd be really grateful for some tips how to solve this.

I already tried changing the browser.gesture.swipe.XXXX values to cmd_scrollLeft/cmd_scrollRight but that didn't work (tried that on 28.9.2 build).

Thank you in advance for any help you provide on this.

Pale Moon is not Firefox, so anything relating to contemporary Firefox will not apply. AFAIK this is a classic desktop browser for keyboard and mouse use and may not necessarily support gestures, I'll let Moonchild confirm. Mouse gestures are possible though with extensions.
