How do I make the scroll wheel on my mouse work?

Thank you for your question, but this sounds more like an issue with the Linux distribution you are using, rather than an issue with Firefox. I recommend contacting the support team for the Linux distribution that you have installed on your device.
I notice that you are using an older version of Firefox. I strongly recommend that you update so that you have the latest security and stability fixes as well as new features. If you need a hand updating, I recommend you have a read of this article.
I am having the same problem which just started with the latest Firefox update today. I am on Firefox version 48.0 running on Windows 10 Professional. I have checked my mouse settings and they have not changed. The scroll wheel is set to 3 lines with each click. I tried clearing all caches and have rebooted the system but it still will not scroll. I can only use the down arrow at the bottom of the bookmarks to get to the one I want to use. The scroll wheel does work when I'm viewing web pages, it just will not work any longer on the bookmarks.
