There are different modifiers that can be used with mousewheel to provide certain effects, e.g. ctrl+mousewheel will do reflow zoom and so on. We should add telemetry to see how often these get used, so that if we want to repurpose the modifiers for pinch-zooming we have a better idea of the tradeoffs involved.

We should do this sooner rather than later so we have lead time to get data.

Data collection request

(I lol'd at stopping people in the street)

DATA COLLECTION REVIEW RESPONSE:

    Is there or will there be documentation that describes the schema for the ultimate data set available publicly, complete and accurate?

Yes. This collection is Telemetry so is documented in its definitions file [Histograms.json](https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/file/tip/toolkit/components/telemetry/Histograms.json) and the [Probe Dictionary](https://telemetry.mozilla.org/probe-dictionary/).

    Is there a control mechanism that allows the user to turn the data collection on and off?

Yes. This collection is Telemetry so can be controlled through Firefox's Preferences.

    If the request is for permanent data collection, is there someone who will monitor the data over time?

No. This collection will expire in Firefox 80.

    Using the category system of data types on the Mozilla wiki, what collection type of data do the requested measurements fall under?

Category 2, Interaction.

    Is the data collection request for default-on or default-off?

Default on for all channels.

    Does the instrumentation include the addition of any new identifiers?

No.

    Is the data collection covered by the existing Firefox privacy notice?

Yes.

    Does there need to be a check-in in the future to determine whether to renew the data?

Yes. :kats is responsible for renewing or removing the collection before it expires in Firefox 80.
