If you find that Firefox for Android scrolls too quickly, it is possible to slow it down.

  1. In the address bar, enter about:config.
  2. In the search bar (top right), enter ui.scrolling.friction.
    • This will display two settings ui.scrolling.friction_fast and ui.scrolling.friction_slow.
  3. For both settings, double tap on the -1 (which display a number pad), delete the -1 and enter 1500.
  4. Once done, in the address bar, go to about:home, close Firefox for Android and re-open it.

You should now find that pages will scroll much less freely and be much more sticky.
