After resetting my device, I'm not able to close applications by swiping from top of the screen. Applications are only minimized, but not closed so I have to close them from Home screen. I'm running Sailfish without support for Android applications.

Cool, thank you, that solved dhe problem :-) But I still wander why wasn't this enabled by default after reset (I certainly didn't disable this option since I didn't know it could be disabled).

I think swipe closing has been disabled by default since it became optional.

Thank you! I've been struggling with this for months (didn't bother to google until now).
