Steps to reproduce

Using a precision touchpad to use 2 fingers to scroll up/down a page now results in some confusing jiggling when a page is scrolled to the top as mostly vertical swipes aren’t being locked to the Y-Axis, resulting in the page diagonally shifting while the swipe/forward/back guesture creeps in.

The X / Y Axis locking works well when scrolled down to the middle of a page, only detecting true left/right 2 finger swipes as forward/back gestures, and allowing slightly diagonal up/down 2 finger swipes to only scroll without shifting the page contents from side to side. It’d be great if the same axis locking was in full effect when scrolled to the top of the page too.

    • This is driving me nuts. I use two finger scrolling all the time and now I am regularly losing the page I am due to accidental back/forward swiping. This is especially annoying when doing data entry on a page.

    • Can confirm this is fixed in 14388
