Firefox does not support Pointer Events yet. It can be enabled using
about:config.

There is an issue where window.onpointerdown (or something similar) exists,
but it never fires -
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1017086
Which breaks feature detection.

That attribution is weird. Perhaps the page existed in MDN but got removed
for some reason (in order not to show interest or support of the feature,
for political reasons). Nevertheless, if portions did come from MDN, we
should mention this. I think you can just replace the specific page link
with a link to the homepage of MDN, like the MSDN attribution generally
does.
