I had a funny moment this morning. I set up my Mac’s wireless keyboard and trackpad and was looking around for Firefox’ gesture preferences. I had setup Shift+Swipe-left / Swipe Right to switch tabs on my trackpad and am fairly used to that behavior. I did a search and found a link on Duck Duck Go was a link to a Firefox support post talking about Pinchy: a simple addon I wrote a couple of years back to set those preferences.
Too bad it requires a manual uninstall but for the most part, it does the trick and I got my gestures back.
- pinch in == zoom in
- shift + pinch in == close tab
- pinch out == zoom out
- shift + pinch out == toggle full screen
- shift + 3-finger swipe left == previous tab
- shift + 3-finger swipe right == next tab
