    With Snow Leopard I could go back swiping the two fingers (and by go back I mean instead of pressing the BACK BUTTON on the windows) from everything: when I open a folder in a folder in a folder... just swipe left and I'm back in the previous one or in the Mac App store, how do I do it now? And also I use to be able to reload the page by circling the 3 fingers, what about now?

    1 finger swipe on magic mouse, 2 fingers on trackpad.

    Actually not, if you're talking about Snow Leopard yes that is the way, but on Lion it won't work that way (it works ONLY on Safari), that is why I'm asking!

    I have Lion and and my Macbook Pro running lion it is two fingers. On the Magic Mouse it is 1. If you go into Preferences/Trackpad it will show you all of the different gestures.

    Actually that is EXACTLY how it works in Lion. 2 finger swipe on a magic mouse will switch spaces.....3 finger swipe on trackpad will switch spaces.

    I don't think there is a gesture for "back" in anything but safari right now...but its only been out less than a week. Patience.

    You can set your gestures in System Preferences to swipe with one or two fingers (or two or three fingers with a trackpad) to keep the nice animation in Safari and navigate everywhere else.

    Yeah, but Finder has Back/Forward button, but no gesture works. That is annoying.

    If you set your gestures to how I said in the post above you it would work in finder; it works fine for me.
