OS X Lion - The new swipe...

Well here we go already... or it could just be me.

But after I installed Lion, I lost the swipe for browsing webpages back and forth with right and left swipes. And for the love of me I can't seem to find anything that refers to that in the swipe settings

I really miss this function as I often swipe my way through forums etc.

Anyone who can fix me?

You should still be able to swipe back and forward, at least in Safari, but the behavior is slightly different. The direction is reversed (to go with the new scrolling) and it's less of a "swipe" and more of a page flip. Try dragging two or three fingers slowly from left to right and you should see what I mean.

You are right... I guess it's a compatibility issue with FireFox that's the culprit here.

Thanks for clearing this up

change the settings for flipping between pages from 3 fingers to 2 fingers, and the gesture will "magically" work again...I'm using it right now in chrome

Three-finger-swipe in Twitter for Mac to open links is also not working, it changes desktops which isn't bad but I'd like to open links to.

OK so have sussed that in Safari, the fact it doesn't work for me in Chrome, does that suggest it needs somehow enabling in Chrome?

Use four fingers

Four finger swipes enable back/forwards in Safari and Firefox without configuration. Feels odd, but there you are.

What's strange is that the finger swipes work with Chrome but you have to use 4 fingers and only when I have my MBP connected to my TV using the Magic Trackpad. I only realized that the 4 finger swipe didn't work when I took the MBP off the TV.

The 2 finger page turn works on Safari only for me so far...

I've been really liking Lion thus far, but I'm having a hard time doing the new swipe in Safari. The direction of the two fingered swipe makes sense to me, and I like the animation, but it seems slower the the traditional three fingered swipe; is anyone else experiencing that as well? I can three finger swipe back and forth quite quickly, but the two fingered swipe causes the page to load, and doesn't always resume the position that the page was on before.

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

the way it works in safari would have to be added to chrome, as it isn't technically forward/back, but rather "paging".

BetterTouchTool lets you define gestures for the trackpad, which is very handy for restoring functions like this.

The gestures I had on SL were so screwed up in Lion, I reverted back to SL lol. I will wait for the next update to play with Lion again
