3 finger swipe/flick for page back/forward not working

  • Currently using Opera beta 29.0.1795.41 on Windows 8.1 using a Dell Inspiron 7520 with the latest Elantech touchpad driver for this machine (v11.3.16.1).

    3 finger swipe/flick doesn't work to complete page back/forward navigation (instead it performs a page down/page up action - not desirable). Does this work for anyone else? Is there any other way I can get page back/forward with a simple touchpad gesture (not using the touchpad's buttons)? On all other browsers I've tried in Windows (Firefox, Chrome and even IE11) this gesture works flawlessly. I've enabled the 'Flick' option in 'Multi finger gestures' in the touchpad's 'Gestures' options. I've been using a MacBook recently as well, and there a simple 2-finger flick navigates backwards or forwards, even in Opera 28.

  • Does anyone have any suggestions as how to fix this? Someone raised the same issue on Super User a few months ago: No replies there yet either.
