Firefox: Enabling pixel scrolling with touchpads.

May 07, 2021 — ~redtrumpet

There is a bug in Firefox on Ubuntu that prevents precise scrolling when using a touchpad or a trackpoint. One way to fix[1] this is to start Firefox with MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1 firefox, or put


in /etc/environment.

[1] In fact this may trigger other bugs when a notification appears while scrolling.
