Any way to use multitouch gestures in Firefox?

I noticed you can double tap the trackpad to zoom in on Safari, and pinch in and out for zoom as well, but you can't do it in Firefox. Is there an add-on I can download or a way to activate such gestures on Firefox?

The device is a Macbook Pro 15" (Late 2011)

Thanks in advance for the help

How to activate pinch to zoom (it's not a smooth motion unfortunately) and twist to change tabs:

Also, OSX also has a universal zoom in case you ever need it:

Thank you! I can't seem to repeat those instructions for the universal zoom, though. I tried going into Universal Access and I turned zoom on, but I'm unsure of what symbols to use. It has three symbols, the second one being the Command key, and the third one being other keys I know of. But what's the first key? It looks like an X with parts of it missing. Which key is that?

That would be the Option key. Or you can just hold control and scroll up and down to zoom in or out.
