Scratch of the day - How to disable mouse gesture in Firefox on OS X

Starting from OS X snow leopard (10.6) to Lion (10.7), Firefox have a mouse gesture of swiping 2 fingers left as go back a page in history & swiping to the right as go forward a page in history. Some times it is too sensitive as I scroll up & down in text reading would also trigger this behavior. Then I need reload the page again to get back where am I.

Search in Google & Duckduckgo doesn't yield much useful instructions. But out of a sudden a bulb lights up, this could be due to the mouse gestures that is being mischievous all these times!

It turns out that turning off the "Swipe between pages" in Mouse -> More Gestures does disable this mischievous behavior. :)

Arrivederci !!!
