Summary

Gesticulate is a work-in-progress add-on that supports rocker gestures to execute common browsing tasks.

Help! This doesn't work on Mac or Linux!

First, make sure you have Firefox 58 or greater. Then go to about:config and set ui.context_menus.after_mouseup to true. This will ensure that when you start a gesture with RMB, you'll be able to complete the gesture instead of being interrupted by the context menu.

Supported Gestures

RMB->LMB: Go back LMB->RMB: Go forward MMB->LMB: Previous tab MMB->RMB: Next tab

User reviews
Simple and effective. Would be improved if the middle mouse button had the option of refreshing the tab contents with a click.

Works perfectly. The biggest thing missing when coming from Opera/Vivaldi were the rocker gestures. Also not a bloated mess like all the other gesture extensions.

It works like a charm on Linux with FF58! Think to enable new option in about:config and set ui.context_menus.after_mouseup to true
