I see Firefox uses more like a setting of 2 rather than 5 nowadays, so maybe we should revisit those defaults indeed. Part of the reason is that devices have changed.
IME, Firefox scrolls by 3 lines rather than 2.

I guess that depends on which font sizes you usually encounter. IME,
it's often close to 2 lines.

How about changing the default to 2 lines and see how it works out,

With the (old) wheel-mouse I'm using a setting of 5 works rather well, but the rare few times I've used a touchpad with a scroll area, I've indeed found the behavior to be difficult to use.
Touchpads are tricky to get right, and the scroll amount (that the user expects) also differs by the OS. Maybe we should have a different setting for them, if distinguishing is possible.

That also sounds good, if it is possible to do so.

Another thought also struck me, but I know very little about such
things, so I'm going to ask: how hard would it be to (optionally)
piggy-back the window system's native scrolling mechanisms?
