I know about synaptics; I installed it manually at FC2. But my real question is, what feature of Firefox causes it to go back pages when one accidentally touches a particular part of the touchpad, and which part of the touchpad is involved?

Here is what I have found. If the pointer is on the web page and I tap lower right corner and slide to the upper left corner I will go back one page. I have not been able to make it go forward yet, but I am still looking. I will set MaxTapTime to 0 and see if continues to act the same way.
