#28729 new defect

Think about enabling pointer events again in Tor Browser based on esr68

Description

In #25794 we disabled pointer events for the time being as parts of Mozilla's defense were not ready yet and/or were largish backports.

We should think about switching to Mozilla's defense and enabling pointer events again where they are enabled by a default Firefox.

Mobile got Pointer Events support in GeckoView based on mozilla70 and we don't have a defense against that yet. Thus, we should leave them disabled for now so that nothing falls through the cracks here, in particular once we switch to Fenix and revisit the decision later on.
