Uncheck opera:config#UserPrefs|ShowGestureUI and lower opera:config#UserPrefs|GestureThreshold
Or ask on reddit. Whatevs.
Now I've been using the gestures with the lower threshold, it makes them much more responsive. Back to whizzing around the internet again!
It amuses me whenever I'm showing anybody something on the internet and using Opera, and they are amazed at how fast I fly around between different tabs, the speed at which I can back out of a link that isn't as useful as I thought. Huzzah for Opera!
*not surprised at your helpfulness, which particularly for anything to do with Opera is outstanding, more that the person responsible for the gesture system (whilst offering a good explanation of why things are different and how they'll be changing it back) didn't suggest the quick fix that you did.
