 ‚ÄčAs of Firefox 55, the `window.pageYOffset`, `pageXOffset`, `scrollX`, and
 `scrollY` properties now return data with subpixel accuracy. We think this
 means "half pixels on a macOS Retina or other high resolution display." We
 should determine if this adds any fingerprinting risks (and whether the
 values returned are already rounded when `privacy.resistFingerprinting` is
 set to `true`). See:
