    Hi there,

    I recently upgraded to Firefox 4 beta 9 from beta 8, and I noticed that the three-finger gesture has changed. In beta 7/8, three-finger gesture (down) triggered Panorama(tabbed groups), but now it's changed to scroll down/scroll up.

    Any suggestions on how to bring back to Panorama trigger?

    That how it use to be before firefox 4 scroll up and down. The shortcut key is command E or the top right corner with the strange windows for Panorama.

    you can try something like FireGestures maybe

    Yeah, the gesture was added with beta 7, I believe. The three-finger gesture as a trigger is much more convenient for me than pressing command+E.

    I'm running FF 3.x and you can change that in about:config. Type gesture as your filter, and you should see all of them. i just changed the two twist gestures so that I can switch between tabs. If you know someone that is still running beta 8, you can find out exactly what to replace the "scroll" with.

    Thanks for all your help, guys, but I got it!

    In order to get the swipe down/up to trigger panorama you have to change these:

    browser.gesture.swipe.down > Browser:ShowTabView
    browser.gesture.swipe.up > Browser:HideTabView
