Using Firefox quantum 57 and Ubuntu 17.10, I am unable to scroll a web page by touching the screen and sliding the page. However this works in Chrome browser.
How to make touch-screen scrolling work in Firefox Quantum?
The same solution for Firefox 50 and Ubuntu 16.xx still works for Firefox Quantum 57 and Ubuntu 17.10: Ubuntu 16 and touchscreen scrolling in FireFox
The solution is to launch firefox using:
env MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1 firefox
You can make this permanent by modifying the launcher using the following:
sudo sed -i "s|Exec=|Exec=env MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1 |g" /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop
To undo this change, use:
sudo sed -i "s|Exec=env MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1 |Exec=|g" /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop
Comparing touch scrolling in Firefox Quantum, using this solution. with touch scrolling in Chrome:
