Steps to reproduce

I defined three finger swipe left and thee finger swipe right gestures as emulated back and forward mouse buttons respectively in the touchpad settings for precision touchpad in my Dell XPS 15 9550. The gesture works fine in other applications, for example in Firefox.

When I use this gesture in Edge, the browser often jumps 2 pages back in the history or 2 pages forward. I know there is a two finger gesture built into Edge that does the same thing, but the animation is unnecessarily slow and I want to have a consistent gesture across the system - which means three finger swipes for me.

    • Same problem here. Works fine in Chrome but not in Edge. Asus Zenbook ux302lg using the asus smart gesture driver.
