3 Finger Swipe w/out cursor movement possible?

So, I have 3 finger swipes left/right mapped to switching tabs and up/down to opening and closing tabs in Safari. I've been using these for a long time now and awhile ago I remember that the cursor would also 'freeze' so to speak (e.g. the cursor stops moving with native apple gestures) when the 3 finger swipe would be triggered.

It's been quite annoying lately and I'm just trying to find a fix to this. Much appreciated!!
