I managed to find a regression range Last good (2016-05-19) - First bad (2016-05-20).
Here is the pushlog from mozregression:

Let me know if I can help any further with the investigation.
Is this feature enabled on release? Or is this something still in the works for the future and preffed off past aurora?

The feature is not enabled anywhere by default yet.

Thanks, that's what I thought. Marking this issue fix-optional for 49/50 (we don't really need to track it yet, but it's showing up on platform regression triage)

Bug 1276607 - Activate content frame when stopping RDM to restore focus.

Looks good to me!
Failures are related to intermittent bugs only, and that fix worked well when I tested it locally.

No, the feature is disabled by default.  I've updated the tracking flags.
