Firefox 3.5's Three-Finger Swipes Web Browsers
In addition to the previous "twist" gestures which are disabled by default, Firefox 3.5 also ships with default enabled multi-touch swipe inputs:
  • Three-finger swipe up: Home key (top of the page)
  • Three-finger swipe down: End key (bottom of the page)
  • Three-finger swipe left: Browse back
  • Three-finger swipe right: Browse forward
These can be edited by entering about:config in the address bar. Enter swipe in the filter box.

By the way, if you want to set any of these to change tabs, use Browser:PrevTab and Browser:NextTab.

Do I need hardware support for multi-touch to work in Firefox? Or should I expect it to work on my 2006-model MBP ?

I'm sure you will need hardware support for multi-touch. Sorry.

It's also worth noting three-finger swipes for back and forth are built into Safari too.
