Adding firefox40:+ tracking flag. And set firefox40-affected to "Fixed" based on comment #2.
That isn't accurate, the backout happened after the merge to aurora. Since this is e10s only I don't know if it is worth uplifting.
Dave, except if it can cause more regressions, it is worth uplifting it as we have now e10s proposed to our users on aurora.
Could you fill the uplift request? Thanks
