    Anyone else encountered this? I was using three finger swipe left/right to navigate folder history in Finder, and all of a sudden it doesn't work. The same with three finger swipe up and down in Firefox used to jump to the top/bottom of a page no longer does.

    Any guesses what's happened and how to fix? I've not changed any settings.

    Have you tried restarting your Mac with 'reopen windows when logging back in' disabled? The issues you're mentioning are synonymous with a large uptime.

    I've had that option disabled since I first installed El Cap. It does seem to take a while to restart though.

    Does anyone know if Better Touch Tool has the option to restore this or would it likely be a bug?

    Sorry to bump, does this still work for everyone else? If you try navigating folders in Finder (folder view), then three finger swipe left and right, are you able to go back and forth through your folder history? It's still not working for me, all of a sudden.
