Build ID: 20170413192749

Steps to reproduce:

• Find a computer with macOS Sierra (10.12.4)
• Launch latest stable version of Firefox
• Open any page which is taller than window height
• Spin mouse wheel by exactly 1 "click" (don't know how it's called in English but you know that mouse wheel movement is discrete, and this means spin by smallest detectable amount)

On all previous versions of OS X, this problem didn't happen.

Actual results:


Expected results:

Page should scroll by a small amount
Keep in mind that this is not an impossible obstacle put by Apple; many other applications somehow figured how to function correctly under the new macOS. For example, IntelliJ IDEA CE, Transmission, mpv (video player) all detect mouse wheel movement correctly, so at least it's possible to take a look how they did it. (all 3 examples are free and open source)

I have tested this issue on Mac OS 10.12 with the latest Firefox release (53.0), Firefox (52.0) and the latest Nightly (55.0a1-20170424030211) and managed to reproduce it. 
The issue is reproducible on the latest Firefox Release, when spinning the mouse wheel exactly one "click" as mentioned in the description, the page doesn't scroll.
However, the issue is no longer reproducible on the latest Nightly.

I've performed a regression, the results is below:

Judging by the pushlog, the fix for this bug has been mentioned here:

Considering this, I will mark this issue as a duplicate of that bug.
