How do I stop "momentum" scrolling?

Hi there,

On Firefox, I'm experiencing "momentum" scrolling where, when I scroll using the trackpad, after I lift my fingers off, it keeps scrolling for a bit.

This is not the same thing as smooth scrolling. Disabling smooth scrolling does not disable this behaviour, and I use smooth scrolling on plenty of programs without it experiencing this "sliding" "momentum" on any of them except Firefox. I've also used Firefox before with trackpads without experiencing this.

How can I disable this?
