We disabled dom.w3c_touch_events.enabled in #10286 as a defense-in-depth against fingerprinting while providing a patch to neuter the risk here as well. The patch got upstreamed in and made it into Firefox 60 ESR.

We should think about whether we should enable the preference again for desktop platforms. We start doing that for Android with #27256.
