    No problem here. But then, you seem to be one that is having issues all the time and you love complaining about Lion.

    Anyway, found the problem by messing around.

    Firefox and Chrome uses 3-finger swipe for going back and forth while Safari uses 2-finger swipe. That is what caused the problem. Going to system preference and enable 3-finger swipes also for going back and forth fixed it.

    edit: Great, now I can't use 3-finger window drag if I have this option enabled.

    Download better touch tool and change firefox from three fingers to two. Works perfectly. I even then changed the three finger swipe in firefox and safari to be a tab switch and in iTunes to be a song switch. In fact I enabled two finger page swipes in the app store and iTunes store so it is now a universal gesture. Great tool!

    three finger jump to bottom is still broken, as well as finger scrolling within web page submenus also screwy.

    Did you bother to contact the creator of the software? Their contact information is very easy to find on their website. It's seems like they would know better than random people on the Internet.
