thanks Corrine
I have found a better way (IMO).

I cleared all the gestures and add a simple flick up - Top of page, flick down - bottom of page.

The only negative is that it works so well that is addictive, I find myself trying to flick up/down in every application. I can't even think about using Opera as a browser since you can't seem to customize gestures.

Use at peril of getting addicted...
