When I updated to firefox 4 my forward/back and horizontal scroll functions no longer worked. I reverted back to the last firefox and the functions work with that. I like the new v4 layout but cant live without my easy forward/back :(
I have a HP laptop with Alps Pointing device (touchpad). Just thought Id give you guys a heads up!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open firefox v4 and browse a few pages.
2.Attempt to use forward/back gestures with Alps pointing device.
3.No forward/back/horizontal scroll, doh!

Actual Results:  
I didnt change pages.

Expected Results:  
Back/forward/horizontal scroll.

Once again I use my laptops touch pad with current drivers. Fwd/Back/horizontal scroll functions dont work in FF4, yet do in FF3.
