Magic Mouse Two Finger Swipe

I've had a magic mouse for quite awhile but there's one thing that has never worked correctly: two finger swipe.
When trying to use the gesture to navigate through web history or pictures, it will only work going backward (left swipe). When I swipe to the right, the active window is hidden. I'm very baffled and hoping there is a fix as I would really like to use this feature. Thanks!

No workaround so far with this problem and also no posts in the Opera forums. Just have to wait until Opera includes this functionality in their next release.
In the meantime you can help by joining the forum (takes a minute) and posting your concern. The more people that join and voice their complaint the faster something will get coded into their browser.

  • Magic Mouse - Two Finger Swipe not working in Finder + iTunes

    since OSX 10.8 I realized that in Finder & iTunes the backward/forward navigation has stopped working with Magic Mouse (two-finger-swipe gesture).
    I have already read a lot of forums as well as apple-discussions and didn't find a solution apart from MagicPrefs or any other 3rd-party-app.
    Is that a bug or just not meant to work? Does anybody know why Apple stopped providing this - very useful - gesture?
    Thank you for your time and have a perfect day

    Pual_31 suggested good advise...
    I would also recommend if that does not work, to reboot and run "repair permissions" from Disk Utilities.
    Also might suggest downloading and trying MagicPrefs, it's a free program for the Magic Mouse and it really works great. May help with your problem, may not but I'd give it a try.

  • Windows 7, Magic mouse, two finger swipe action

    I'm using the 27" iMac.
    Does the newer bootcamp supports two finger swipe action on the magic mouse on Windows 7?
    Also, the scrolling action works but I can't seem to control the speed of the scrolling.
    Are these normal at this point?

    if not already done, install the BC Driver update 3.1

  • Magic Mouse two finger swipe (forward/back) not working with Opera 10.

    Magic Mouse left and right two finger swipe (forward and back) works great with Safari, Firefox, and Camino.
    I enjoy using Opera 10 and noticed that the two finger swipe does not function with Opera. Any ideas on why or what adjustments I can make to get it to work?

  • Magic Mouse -- two finger swipe problem

    I have the wireless mouse. Twice now, I have had to unplug my iMac to get the mouse to work with the two fingered swipe. Anybody else experiencing this inability to perform the two finger swipe?

    Per your system info: +"iMac G5 Mac OS X (10.6.2)"+
    G5 iMacs cannot run Snow Leopard. Only Intel Macs can. Therefore, you actually have an Intel iMac. Please correct your system info so that you will get the correct troubleshooting suggestions. How to identify your iMac How to identify iMac (Mid 2007) and later models

  • Swap magic mouse one finger swipe with two fingers swipe

    Hello, I am wondering if it is possible to do next thing with magic mouse:
    I want use two finger swipe gesture for back and forward while browsing.
    And I want to disable one finger swipe (because I am activating it too often occasionally).
    Is it possible to customize gestures setup this way?

    UPDATE: Apple Care suggested a *power reset*. Turn system off, disconnect all cables, wait 30 seconds - 45 seconds, reconnect and power up. Before powering down I went to System Preferences, Internet & Wireless, Bluetooth, highlighted the Apple Wireless Mouse, clicked "-" below the chart, and clicked "YES" to the disconnect question. Then I moved the 2) PLIST files again mentioned in the earlier email to Trash. (User name - Library - Preferences - & At that time, I did the Power Reset mentioned above.
    Connected the MM to Mac Book Air as a test to determine whether it is a mouse or driver problem. The mouse worked perfectly on the MBA. I then unpaired it.
    Reconnected and powered up the Mac Pro, and +the 2 finger swipe works again!+

  • Magic Mouse One-Finger Swipe Works for one user but not the other

    For the main account on my iMac, I can use a single finger swipe to move back and forward within Chrome. However the second user (also an administrator) cannot use this setting and must instead use the two finger swipe in settings. Both settings are identical but the Chrome browser wont recognize the single finger swipe for the second user. The gesture works fine in Safari, but not Chrome. Any suggestions?

  • Magic Mouse 1 finger swipe moves app to new desktop

    My mid-2009 is running the latest ML bits and it has developed an extremely irritating behavior.
    When using my Magic Mouse a 1 finger swipe across the top part of a window moves it to the next desktop. I have my settings in system prefs set to use a 3 finger swipe to change desktops. I also have turned off "Swipe between pages" in the Magic Mouse settings. Sometimes I'll move my finger on the mouse a litlle and suddenly find myself (and the window I was over) on the next desktop.
    I also get this behavior on my MBP pad if I swipe 2 fingers across the top of a window. That's also a little irritating, but less disruptive to my work.
    I would love to know how to disable this behavior.

    I guess you have installed all available updates, including this one?
    As a test, you can create a new admin user account in System Preferences Accounts pane
    Log out and log in to the new account. Try the mouse there. This will help narrow down the cause. If it works in the new account, the cause is probably in your normal user account. If the same problem recurs, then the cause is probably at the system level.

  • No two-finger swipe for month, year, day in iCal

    I can't use a two-finger swipe to switch forward or back in iCal in day, month, or year view, only week. How can I get it to do this in the other views?

    System Preferences...>Mouse>More Gestures will influence your "two-finger" swipe choices. If you have a Trackpad, choose that instead of Mouse in System Preferences.
    Swiping is only available in the Calendar Day/Week views. Monthly changes are made by scrolling, and Year view is changed by clicking on the < > arrows surrounding the word "Today" on the top left side of the Year window.

  • Two-finger swipe

    Two finger swipe on trackpad with control key works fine for zooming screen, but it does not remain in force -- something turns it off, & I have to log out and back in to get it to work again. 10.7, 2.8GHz Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM.

    Go to ~/Library/Preferences and move this file to the Trash.
    Restart your iMac.
    The update may have corrupted the Mouse preferences is all.
    If that didn't help, you can re "pair" the mosue with your iMac.
    Open System Preferences/Bluetooth
    Make sure the mouse is turned on. Select your mouse on the left then click the - button.
    Then click the + which will prompt the Bluetooth Setup Assistant and you can re "pair" the mouse.
    Hopefully that will help the "two finger swipe" issue.

  • Safari-Two Finger Swipe = White Screen

    I was under the impression that the latest updateto Safari was supposed to fix this issue. But whenever I browse this forum and two finger swipe to go back in safari I get a white screen that lasts anywhere between 5-8 seconds while the page reloads. Any fix for this?

    Go to System Prefernces and Trackpad or Mouse, depending on which you are using, and see that the gestures you want to use are all checked.

  • Having issues with two-finger swipe and hot corners. Help!

    I've lately been having an issue, where my two finger swipe will stop working. I also notice that 3 of my 4 hot corners no longer work, either. The only one that works is the top left. When I restart my computer, or change users, etc, it's fixed for a while, but then the problem will start up again in about an hour.
    I've tried the Software Update, and it seems everything is up to date. Any solutions?? I spent a good deal of money on this iMac, and I'm concerned there's something wrong with it.
    I have a 27" iMac, which I bought around November 2011. Software is OSX 10.7.5

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards, if applicable. Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you turn on the computer, and again when you log in.
    Note: If FileVault is enabled in OS X 10.9 or earlier, or if a firmware password is set, or if the startup volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to start up and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal startup may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually login automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
    After testing, restart as usual (not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • No two finger swipe for navigating files in Lion?

    I use the track pad and just updated to Lion - which has some great features. But I while I can two finger swipe on Safari pages to go back and forth, I don't seem to be able to do that now when going through my files in Finder....
    Am I missing something or is this the way it is now?....
    Any help would be appreciated!

  • Can not do "two finger swipe to go back" in "look up" gesture.

    In Mountain Lion the "two finger swipe right to go back" navigates just fine in the "look up" function in a three finger tap gesture.
    But in Mavericks the two finger swipe right cannot go back.
    This makes a low efficiency.
    Do someone get the same issue or just me? Can this be fixed?

    I just found out that the two finger swipe right don't do any thing on the right side of this red line in the pop up window, but on the left side of this red line, it works.
    Low efficiency.

  • Two-finger swipe in Safari makes site unresponsive

    I am having trouble with two-finger swipe.
    If I swipe back or forward while browsing, all navigation on the site stops working. With mousover links show up, but nothing happens when clicked. Scrolling up and down altso stops.
    Using the back and forward navigation do not have this affect.
    I'm running Safari 5.1.1 on OS X 10.7.2 on a MacBook Air.
    Does anyone know a fix for this trouble?

    There are reports that this problem can be solved by simply restarting, or by resetting the PRAM.
