MacBook Air :: Any Add-on To Enable Swipe Feature For Firefox
Jul 17, 2008
Now one of my favorite things about the air is the ability to swipe instead of clicking forwards and backwards. I'd like to try Firefox, however unless I can install some sort of add-on, allowing me to swipe, it's just not going to work for me. My question is, does such an add-on exist?
My mother just got an iMac 27". It is running at 2560x1440. However, at this resolution even on the big monitor the menu bars are quite as is the font on the menus. In windows which she used to use and which I use, there's a "Large Fonts" feature which increases the size of the font on menu bars, and the button on the window manager.
However, I can't seem to find this feature on the mac. I increased the cursor size. I increased the default size of window content in safari etc. And can incr. the size of the dock. But no where can I find a "large font" feature. I can drop the resolution, but this is obviously a bad solution as this just makes everything fuzzy and ugly. Is there any way to preserve resolution and incr. menubar sizes/font sizes? The zoom feature is does not have acceptable behavior to conveniently incr. menu size (most of the time it zooms the menus right out of the frame, and the PIP mode is also poor)
I just went to the mozilla site and left some feedback for firefox requesting the 3 finger swipe gesture to be implemented, like in safari. Although, my single request probably wont do much, maybe others have and I'm contributing. Anyway, i thought i should post the link here, and anyone that could be bothered could fill it out as well.. the more people we get to send it, the more likely they developers will implement it
I use Firefox, and I do a 3 finger swipe upwards, it will go to the top of the page. And when I swipe downwards, it goes to the end of the page. I find this really useful. But when I switch to Safari, the same motion does nothing at all
I have seen some people talking about a new feature in Snow Leopard, where hovering over MP3s or PDFs allowed you to preview the file. I am not seeing this feature on my Snow Leopard machine. How do you enable it?
I just received my brand new MBA 2.0 from Apple Store, but there were NO FOUR FINGER SWIPE on it ? The 3 tech support guys I went through, were all clueless to what was wrong, they checked firmware, software etc... nothing wrong but the four finger swipe was not on my MBA 2.0
So I am getting a replacement, unfortunately now I have to wait again.. Anyone else with this problem ?
I have a mid-2009 13 inch mbp and I have been having problems with 2 finger swiping on the trackpad. When I use two finger swipe up/down for scrolling through websites in Safari, it also does Expose as if I am using 4 fingers. This only happens when I try to scroll through a page fast.
I just got the new MacBook (love it!), and the new finger gestures are pretty cool. Expose works really well, but I'm not too fond about the four finger left/right gestures. I have spaces set up, and I'd rather use the four finger gestures for left and right swipes to switch between spaces. I can't find a way to do this in the system prefs - is there some type of work-around to getting this to work?
All of a sudden the swipe to navigate does not work on my macbook pro. I looked in preferences and it is checked to be on. The only thing that I think might conflict it would be jItouch but even with that off it doesn't work. I do have a bamboo tablet hooked up as well as the apple full keyboard but these have never caused any kind of conflict b4.
I've had an iPhone for the last few years and am used to the direction of swiping on the iPhone. I recently purchased a macbook pro and noticed that the scrolling on the iPhone and Macbook occur in the opposite direction when scrolling from top to bottom and it's driving me crazy. I'm looking for a way to change the direction that the window moves when using the two finger swipe on my macbook pro.
When scrolling though web pages on the iPhone, sliding your finger from the top of the phone to the bottom displays text above the current viewing window. In other words, if I place my finger over a word and move my finger up or down my finger is still on top of the word when I'm done scrolling. Scrolling on the track pad of my macbook pro works in the opposite direction. On the macbook when I swipe two fingers from the top to the bottom of the track pad the text above the current window is shown. If I put my cursor over a word and two finger swipe the word moves in the opposite direction as my fingers. I would like to change this behavior so that scrolling occurs in the same manner that it does on the iPhone.
Sitting in front of my old an trusty G4 dual 1 gHz "quicksilver" desktop computer, and I was web browsing, and reading a thread, and wanted to go back to the previous page and got my 3 fingers into position above my keyboard..... when I realized I was sitting at my desktop computer. Now, THAT is conditioning ! Anyone else have these moments? Anyone else as into their MBA's as me?
Running Snow Leopard on Macbook Pro 13" with 4 gig ram 2.26 processor. When i go to four finger swipe down it pulls the windows all up like it's supposed to for about a second then pushes them all off to reveal desktop. same goes for using mighty mouse Also to get the windows back to normal on the screen i need to click off to the side of them.
I am brand new to this site. When i swipe four fingers down on the trackpad to show everything I have open it doesn't work. When I try to swipe four fingers up to get to my desktop it doesn't work. When I try to go back a page in safari by swiping three fingers to the left it wont go back. But when I use two fingers to scroll up and down pages that works just fine. I haven't taken it to an apple store due to I am stuck at college and there isn't one around.
I just upgraded my hard drive, now my trackpad and bluetooth mouse will not scroll or swipe. Preferences for the trackpad will not open says theres an error, bluetooth mouse preferences open with no joy
I've had a late 2011 Macbook Pro for about 4 mths and all of a sudden the trackpad has developed some problems. If I swipe a page it won't allow me to scroll up or down again on the new page that I have swiped too, it freezes. At times when I activate the back button nothing happens and I have to exit out of the site when the page freezes. The scroll only freezes immediately after swiping and not at other times when I'm moving up and down the screens.
I don't like Firefox 11 one bit and am yearning for 3.6. I read online to drag firefox 11 to trash and that, of course did nothing to actually uninstall. I then dowloaded 3.6 and 'installed' that, restarted but still firefox 11 lives on in my computer.
Info: MacBook Pro (13-inch Mid 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8)
