    On SL I used to do a three finger swipe to go back or forward in Safari... How can I get that back in lion? It only seems to work on Mission Control now..

    You can also change it in system preferences, if you don't like 2 finger swipe.

    Ive changed safari to work off two or three finger swipe but the problem is with 2 finger swipe right to left is forwards (as it should be) but with 3 finger swipe they still have right to left as backwards. So same gesture different direction!!
    How do i get 3 finger swipe to work in the "natural" direction? This is the same with All apps apart from safari. Doh!

    Four finger swipe works for me to go back or forward in Safari. It used to be three finger swipe before installing Lion. I am using a trackpad on my iMac, have not changed any of the default settings.
