M171 Logitech mouse scroll wheel does not work with Firefox

I am using Firefox Nightly on Linux.

I have two M171 Logitech mouses. Their scroll wheel works fine everywhere except firefox (chrome works fine, for instance). In firefox, I need to press the scroll wheel down, keep it down and scroll. Then, it scrolls. But just freely scrolling with the mouse does not scroll the page, it does nothing. This happens in every web page. Interestingly, if I use the scroll wheel in the popup of an addon (for instance in the tab listing of a group in Simple Tab Groups), it works there. But not in web pages or the sidebar. I have also tried entering safe mode, but it didn't help.

Did anyone have this issue too?
