Please implement native mouse gestures in the desktop browser (I am personally on Windows) like in Opera. The current implementations from add-ons are very unreliable, finicky or don't work at all in some placed, e.g. in a New tab, Settings, while the mouse is over a video (in YT, for example) etc. Thank you for considering it.

We used to have Fire Gestures

and while I understand the limitations behind Content Script injection we should be able to expand the permissions for extensions we trust, that would take care of like 95% of frustration of WebExtensions implemented gestures, surely some would still be there (being limited to the viewport, having to run and sync multiple instances across multiple frames), but that would be a great improvement

Mouse gestures are so instinctively ingrained in how I navigate.

This is literally the only missing feature keeping me from using Firefox as my daily driver.

Native gestures which works in system tabs are the only thing why I cannot move from my current web browser to Firefox.

Microsoft Edge has this as a native feature.
