Horizontal keyboard scrolling moves in wrong direction on PRIV by Black
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0 Build ID: 20151029151421 Steps to reproduce: 1. Using Firefox on a PRIV by BlackBerry, load any page that allows horizontal scrolling (or that allows zooming). I tested with http://www.bbc.com/news. 2. Zoom in if necessary so that horizontal scrolling is allowed. 3. Scroll horizontally using the touch-sensitive keyboard. Actual results: The page scrolling is in the opposite direction from Chrome 46. It's also the opposite direction from the BlackBerry Browser on a BlackBerry Passport. Firefox's scrolling direction is inconsistent with vertical scrolling. When scrolling vertically in Firefox using the touch-sensitive keyboard, an upwards scroll event moves down the page. Expected results: The page should scroll in the same direction as Chrome 46. Just as an upwards scroll event on the keyboard moves down the page, a leftwards scroll event should move right on the page, to match the behavior of touch scrolling on the screen.

Comment on attachment 8688609 [details] [diff] [review] Negate both X and Y for mouse wheel scrolling, which matches Android platform behaviour Approval Request Comment [Feature/regressing bug #]: it's been this way for a long time, but only exposed recently on new devices (i.e. BlackBerry PRIV) [User impact if declined]: horizontal scrolling on the PRIV is backwards [Describe test coverage new/current, TreeHerder]: not really [Risks and why]: very low risk; only affects horizontal scrolling for events by "pointer" input types. I don't know of any other device that does this; most mousewheels only do vertical scrolling which is probably we've never hit this before [String/UUID change made/needed]: none
Liam, would you be able to verify that this issue is fixed as expected on the latest Nightly build (11/19)? Thanks!
Looks good! I loaded the latest Nightly (2015-11-20) on PRIV by BlackBerry and confirmed that the horizontal scrolling direction is now as expected. It's now consistent with Chrome 46 and with scrolling on the touchscreen.
