Details

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #819613 +++

I have the Microsoft Touch mouse, which includes a touch gesture for going back/forward in a browser's history (or in other programs where it makes sense) by swiping my thumb either down or up against the side of the mouse. This works in desktop Firefox and IE, as well as Metro IE. 

It doesn't seem to do anything in Metro Firefox. I think it should, at least for parity with IE.

The MozillaZine thread linked in this bug's URL field says that the hardware back/forward buttons on Logitech mice also don't work in Metro Firefox, while it does work everywhere else. I'd guess it's the same issue for both the gestures and the buttons?
Yuan/Michael - feel free to rename the summary for this UX design work.
