    well. i want to use multiclucth to make a gesture so i can go back to my home page. but i don't have the home key in this macbook pro's keyboard. any idea?

    i believe the shortcut is opt+home. but what should i do with this keyboard that has no the home button?

    thanks..

    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!

    Easy solution

    Just bought a MBP as the first :apple: 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.

    Mouse gestures are your friend.
