We are about to go to 54 RC. Mark 53/54 won't fix.

As this has shipped in 2 releases already I'm going to call it fix-optional for 55.
Too late to fix in 63. We could still take a patch for 65 and potentially for 64.

Bulk change for all regression bugs with status-firefox67 as 'fix-optional' to be marked 'affected' for status-firefox68.

[bulk change 69 status -> --- b/c to stop re-triaging old regressions every release]
