The workaround, using `event.clientX - getBoundingClientRect().left` or other JS measurements synchronously in Javascript, is what can potentially cause layout thrashing, and in general `getBoundingClientRect()` is a slow function that I've seen in several web-performance gigs. 

I don't know about libraries that sniff for Firefox and use `offsetX` as is, and my research haven't found any.
