How do I get rid of this unwanted (mac) Safari behavior?

I just now decided that I DON'T LIKE THIS and looked to turn it off, but I can't find the sol'n.

When I 'pinch' my thumb to index finger on my trackpad, the page that I'm looking at disappears and is replaced by a page of showing all open tabs and I'm allowed to select one. I do this accidentally all the time - I want to turn off this 'feature' - anyone know how?

OS 10.14.6
Safari Version 12.1.2 (14607.3.9)

I don't know but a tap of the esc key makes ut all go back the way it was.

You have to disable pinch-to-zoom in the Trackpad settings in the System Pref's.

Yes, that will stop hal's issue but then you can no longer zoom in.

control - two finger swipe still works for zooming the entire desktop. I never used the in app zooming thing. CMD - '+' still works too. I'm set.
