fn + left arrow should be the same as home,

try opt + fn + left arrow.

opt+fn+left arrow works. but too bad multiclutch doesn't understand fn when it's pressed.



thanks though!

Just bought a MBP as the first since a sawtooth g4 (pcs since). I had the same issue when I got multiclutch. The easiest solution for multiclutch gesture for firefox home page is to open multiclutch with an external keyboard (with a home key) connected via usb (or wireless pro keyboard via bluetooth), map the command as <alt/option> + <home> on the external keyboard. The beauty is that once the <home> key has been pressed once on the usb keyboard to map the command in multiclutch, you never need it again.

YMMV.
