According to the bug1262053 comment105, I would like to close the feature on Beta and Aurora, and only enable it on Nightly.

Re-enable the feature after the state is more stable and no any significant issue was found.

Disable the feature so that the playback won't be broken on Amazon Prime video. Beta51+ & Aurora52+. Should be in 51 RC.

Florin, please help verify if bug 1262053 is fixed. Thanks.

Moving the needinfo to Simona who is the current QA Owner for this feature. Once we get the Firefox 51 RC build tomorrow, we should be able to verify that the feature is only enabled in Nightly.
