  Package Firefox with MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1 in environment

Status in firefox package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu version:  Kubuntu 17.04
  Firefox version: 53.0.3+build1-0ubuntu0.17.04.2

  In Firefox, two-finger scroll gestures on a touchpad are interpreted
  as scroll wheel rotations, and the content scrolls three lines at a
  time. This is inappropriate behavior for touchpad scrolling; it should
  scroll pixel-by-pixel.

  Firefox already has the ability to do this, you just need to turn it
  on by running the program with MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1 in the environment:
  for example, by running `MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1 firefox`, or adding it to
  /etc/environment or something like that.

  Turning on this behavior yields a large usability improvement for
  laptop users. Therefore, I am proposing that MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1 be
  permanently added to the packaging such that it's always present when
  Firefox runs. This is what Fedora does, and it results in a much
  improved experience for the laptop user.
