Where did my "history" gestures go?? And others...

I have a big gripe with Lion about the seeming disappearance of my three fingered left/right swipe for navigating my "history" in Finder. This was the same gesture used in pre-Lion Safari. Yes, the two fingered history swiping is nice, but it does not work in Finder. Anyone know how to get this back? It was available in the Dev. Previews, but not now. :confused:

Also, two more gesture issues:

1) I can't use three fingers to swipe up and down my message list in Mail.app.
2) I can't use a two finger zoom gesture (pinch) to zoom in on my Mail messages.

That doesn't do it. That just lets me scroll through the messages. The three finger up/down gesture actually moved from message to message. That way I didn't have to click on a message to view it.

I just figured it out!

Make the gestures clockwise and counter clockwise to go up/down with THREE fingers to go to the next/prev. messages.
Or you could just change the setting under gestures to "2 or 3 finger swipe" where 2 finger works like safari and 3finger does gestures.
