into your address bar. It will prompt you with a warning, read it, and click on the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button. Don't touch anything in here, it's like the china cabinet you had in your dining room as a kid. Just go and get the Christmas plates your mom asked for as quickly and quietly as you can without touching or breaking anything else.Select the filter ba
r at the top (NOT the address bar) and search "gesture" to bring up all of the actions and commands dealing with gestures.Sort by type
at the column headers. This will group all of the string preferences together, they are the ones you can designate a command to.
You'll notice a preference called "browser.gesture.tap" which represents a single tap/click. It is set to reset the zoom so that, for example, your 400% zoom setting for that size 6 font news site doesn't continue on into an ad you click on that site informing you that you can "Last 2x As Long!" (note: this does not mean you can last 800% longer). If you stay on the same website though, it is my experience that the zoom level stays consistent with your adjustments. My explanation for this feature is completely sourced from personal use though, and may not be correct.You could change this, so that Firefox does something every time you click (perhaps a prank?), but I'm not really sure how it would be useful.To make the adjustments
, simply identify the gesture that you want to adjust, double click it under the "value" column, and paste in the desired command from the list. It is important that you keep the commands the exact same; they only work with the correct, case sensitive version.I have attached images
of the successive pages and screens you should be encountering in order to get to the right place to change your settings. The text is very small in the default window, so click the small "i" in the top left hand corner and go to the original file in order to get a more detailed picture. I should mention that the last picture is not what your screen will look like, but it is what my screen looks like after all of it's modification.Please note that any customizations and modifications you make to the gesture settings here will not transfer to any other applications on your computer. If you want to customize multitouch gestures in other applications, you need to use an application like Multiclutch.
