Without them we don't know if users click through.

UTM parameters should follow what Console is already adding for MDN links for error messages.
Looking through devtools code I see:

devtools/client/netmonitor/src/utils/mdn-utils.js - utm_source=mozilla&utm_medium=devtools-${panelId}&utm_campaign=default
devtools/client/preferences/devtools-client.js - https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/developer/?utm_source=firefox-dev-tools&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_content=betadoorhanger
devtools/server/actors/errordocs.js - ?utm_source=mozilla&utm_medium=firefox-console-errors&utm_campaign=default
devtools/startup/aboutdevtools/aboutdevtools.js -  ?utm_source=devtools&utm_medium=onboarding

I'm guessing we want:

utm_source = mozilla
utm_medium = devtools-menu (devtools-meatball-menu?)
utm_campaign = default (necessary?)

?

Alternatively, elsewhere in the tree I see utm_source=firefox / firefox-browser / inproduct used quite often.

Harald, any suggestions here?

Thank you for the research, Brian! Let's go with the latest addition, which also seems to most sensible.

utm_source = devtools
utm_medium = tabbar-menu

No campaign.

Brian, can we get this in for 61?

Yes. It's on my list to do this week.

I have reproduced this issue using Firefox 61.0a1 (2018.04.15) on Ubuntu 14.04 x64.
I can confirm this issue is fixed, I verified using Firefox 61.0b10 on Win 10 x64, Ubuntu 14.04 x64 and Mac OS X 10.13.
Note: I met the following behavior: 
1. When I click on Meatball/Documentation menu link in URL appears for a few seconds the: utm_source = devtools
                       utm_medium = tabbar-menu

Note: 
I met the following behavior: 
1. When I click on Meatball/Documentation menu item, in URL appears for a few seconds the: utm_source = devtools and utm_medium = tabbar-menu but after the page was loaded the url became: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools 
2. Click on Meatball/Community menu item, after the page was loaded the url is:
https://discourse.mozilla.org/c/devtools?utm_source=devtools&utm_medium=tabbar-menu

This is the expected behavior?

I guess you're getting some sort of redirect that drops the utm parameters. If they show initially then this is working as expected.

Based on comment 12 I'll mark this as verified as fixed on Firefox  61.0b11 on Windows 10 x64, Mac OS X 10.13 and Ubuntu 14.04 x64.
