See relative comment https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=906034#c2 I wonder if there's anything we could do on our side, we probably should reach to google to see how we could get this feature on on firefox.

Flagging on :dees to put this on our PM's radar.

Thanks -- usually Karl would reach out but he's on PTO for 2 weeks. Adam can you get in touch via our ML?
Flags: needinfo?(miket)
Sure. Email sent via the partner mailing list.

Thanks Adam -- looks like we need Bug 1035774 implemented before this feature will work.
Depends on: 1035774

P3 but nothing to really do in this bug.

Kinda some good news about this bug: it seems as of the new Gmail design, the "Touch-enabled" option no longer exists. Maybe someone should double check with Google and if it indeed no longer exists, this bug can be closed
