Steps to reproduce:

Login to familysearch.org
Go to Family Tree > Find
Enter search criteria (entering "Mozilla" in last name field is sufficient.) and click "Find"

Here's an example URL:

(I don't have the skillset to create a minimal testcase from the Family Tree results page, and I haven't found another example.

Actual results:

On the search results page, click the right horizontal scroll arrow.
nothing happens!

Dragging the horizontal scroll bar results in text selection and vertical scrolling.

Bug 1379887. Don't clobber the value of mWillBuildScrollableLayer when we are building a display list for event handling. r=mstange

ScrollFrameHelper::DecideScrollableLayer doesn't get the actual value of usingDisplayPort/wasUsingDisplayPort if we are not painting to the window. It then sets mWillBuildScrollableLayer to usingDisplayPort. mWillBuildScrollableLayer is the value that determines if we are active and hence an ASR, we don't want to change that between paint display lists for an event handling display list.

We then want to condition uses of mWillBuildScrollableLayer and the return value of DecideScrollableLayer on if we want painting to the window so we get the same behaviour as before when not painting to the window.

Expected results:

The page should scroll horizontally.

This bug has returned in recent nightly builds (at least on Windows 10, 64 bit).

STR: Use the original steps in comment 0 or

start recent nightly build (for example 58.0a1 (2017-10-05) (64-bit)
Make the window width narrow.
go to https://www.google.com
In the search bar enter: Utah Museum of Fine Arts
When the search results page is loaded, press the right-scroll arrow at the bottom of the window to scroll the page to the right.

Result: Nothing happens

Expected result: The page should scroll to the right.

If I drag the horizontal scroll bar, I get BOTH vertical and horizontal scrolling with text selection.

Another STR:
Start the browser
Make the window narrow
Load https://getsatisfaction.com/familysearch
Try to scroll horizontally by pressing the > scroll button at the bottom of the window.
