Magic Mouse Swipe + Firefox Help

my magic mouse uses 1 finger swipe to navigate fine in safari. it does not work in firefox. is there a setting i'm missing?

mid2011 imac
10.7 lion
5.1 safari
7.0.1 firefox

thanks for any direction

edit: i think the problem is firefox. browsing back/forward buttons don't work on my other mouse either

64bit 32bit problem

Select the application Firefox.app in your applications folder, then press ⌘-i (or right-click and then select "Get info" from the menu). Once the window is open uncheck the box that says "Open in 32-bit mode". Close the window, open Firefox and now the swiping-function should be working.
