The MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1 version brings real smooth scrolling and touchscreen input, but is barely known.

It should be enabled by default, there's no drawback.

The simplest solution could be to create /etc/env.d/80firefox with MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1

...i'm going to sit on this one and think a while.  I would generally prefer not to install env.d/ entries for things like this, and instead leave it up to the user to do in their own profiles.  That said there may be build-time options or 'pref' options that can be leveraged to take care of this, too.

FYI, this is the upstream tracker bug related to enabling xinput2 by default:
