I cannot seem to find a solution. Answers I found online were to go to options > advanced > general and disable hardware acceleration and/or smooth scrolling. I tried any combination and my scroll is still I assume one line per rotation which is really annoying! Please help me! Thank you in advance.

Hi, it seems that Nightly version 29.0a1 is working fine. I had the "slow scrolling" issue (again) in my Retina Macbook Pro. With Nighty the scrolling is working very smoothly and it respons to mouse commands very well. Hope that this will be true soon in "production" version of the Firefox browser.
