Thanks to MS OpenTech and especially Nick Lebedev, touch-action is now 
implemented in Gecko and can be enabled through about:config in the 
latest Firefox Nightly development builds:

Currently it is implemented only in Firefox for Windows 8 Touch 
("Metro").  Support for other platforms will follow.  Implementation of 
Pointer Events is also progressing, and we have patches in progress 
(again thanks in large part to MS Open Tech) to support the events on 
Windows 8 Metro (also behind a flag).  We don't yet have a target 
release for enabling the features by default, but we'll be tracking that 
here:
