Wesley, I'm a bit hesitant to track this for 55 given this has been filed 2 months ago and there doesn't seem to be much progress yet.  Is this still on track for a fix in early beta55?
Flags: needinfo?(whuang)
I'll track this for 56 for now. The effect sounds minor. If we get a patch we could still uplift to 55.
Very likely the team won't have bandwidth to make it in 55. 
56 is more practical.
Flags: needinfo?(whuang)
Looking at this again it seems like a fairly minor regression and I don't think release management needs to track it - we can leave it to the Fennec team to fix when they have time.
[triage] Bulk edit from title: this is a non-critical issue. Please remove priority if you wish this to be re-triaged.

Reproducible in the latest version of NIghtly 65.0a1 (2018-10-25) with OnePlus 5T (Android 8.1.0).
Marking fix-optional for 64. We could still take a patch for 65, and if it's verified and doesn't seem risky, could still take fixes for 64 as well.
Happy to take a patch in nightly; if it seems low risk enough please feel free to request uplift to 65 beta.

Removing regression keyword since it has been around for many releases.
