Not set

(Whiteboard: [specification][type:bug])

What did you do?

1. Open Firefox fresh (no addons, no profile) on a Macbook
2. Navigate to any website of your choosing
3. Navigate to a secondary website of your choosing
4. Click on the Mouse 5 button

What happened?

Mouse 4 and Mouse 5 trigger the middle-mouse button click event

What should have happened?

Mouse 4 should navigate backwards to the previous page in history, and mouse 5 should navigate forwards, as is the case in Windows.

Is there anything else we should know?

Tried on a 2017 Macbook as well as a 2018 Macbook, both running Mojave
