In Safari browser (on Mac OSX) when using the magic mouse and swipping up/down, the web page scrolls up/down as with every normal mouse using the mouse weel. But when swipping the finger left/right quickly, this translates to back/forward gesture and the web page changes accordingly. Is this behaviour possible on Firefox?

If this is operating system specific I would prefer an Ubuntu solution. Thanks.

Could you edit your question with a better description so that those of us who don't use Safari can understand what you want. –  Tog Jul 31 '13 at 13:40

on mine if enabled by default...
anyway, go to about:config, look for the following lines, and set them as so:

browser.gesture.swipe.left to string: Browser:BackOrBackDuplicate and browser.gesture.swipe.right to string: Browser:ForwardOrForwardDuplicate

These lines are the same with mine. Can you go to the previous page by scrolling left on your touchpad or magic mouse? –  kapcom01 Jul 31 '13 at 11:25
