    I'm trying to transition to Firefox in lieu of Safari but I CANNOT STAND THE SCROLLING BEHAVIORS in Firefox. They suck so bad. Could anyone here please recommend an extension for firefox that paralells the Safari scrolling behaviors exactly?

    Same here, however i read that firefox 3.1 will support gestures, there is a beta that is available, worked like a charm, but my plug-ins weren't supported.

    I'm just going to wait for 3.1 to be released instead.

    This is a gripe I've had about Firefox on Mac for years. It only really affects those using the trackpads on Apple laptops. Always has. Apparently the problem is something called "pixel scrolling" which is used in all Apple-branded software. Until version 3.1 Firefox hasn't supported this. If you get the 3.1 beta you'll notice that the scrolling works much better and is much more like Safari.

    Just downloaded 3.1!! NIGHT AND DAY! It FINALLY scrolls like Safari! Amazing.

    Now, if only it will display some fonts like Safari does, I'll be content...
