You can try to tweak the scrolling preferences in "about:config" but this would alter the defaults. Another one is called scroll and scroll focus I think.

Though the s4 could use improvement. If you could file a bug with more information. Please see the Bug Writing Guidelines before reporting it here]

In order to troubleshoot Firefox for Android issues please provide 1. your exact Galaxy S4 model number: Android Settings->General->About device-Model Number why? Samsung has many variants of their phones and tablets. We've found in the past that less popular variants can have weird issues that aren't noticed on the more popular variants. (e.g. a CDMA variant for the USA may have issues that the the LTE variant for Europe doesn't have)

2. Your exact configuration of the two add-ons: ghostery and self destructing cookies

3. Anything else e.g. you are running some sort of Android anti-virus if so please tell us what you are running

Finally, I have asked our community to try on their Samsung Galaxy S4s. Hopefully one of them can help.

You are right, it is pretty laggy.

Found one that helped only for that website in beta for a temp work around. general.smoothscroll.pages set to false.

But pull up about:healthreport and add to the Performance reports. This can help.
