    What happened to left and right swiping in desktop apps? Worked just fine in Windows 7 but seems to be missing in Windows 8. Makes browsing in Firefox much less touch friendly.

    Indeed. Windows 8 separated desktop programs from the "Modern User Interface", sometimes also referred to as "Metro" mode.

    Windows 10 should unify these gestures in an intuitive way.
