Disable devicelight, deviceproximity and userproximity events from stable
59 bytes, text/x-review-board-request
In Bug 1359076 we disabled devicelight, deviceproximity and userproximity for Nightly and Early Beta. Firefox started firing telemetry in late beta for these events along with the other related events Motion and Orientation. The former that we plan to disable don't even seem to feature in this telemetry, I suspect due to the insignificant number of calls to this telemetry. There haven't been any other reports calling for this feature so as planned in 62 we should disable these non standard events from stable.

Ha, I didn't have much to do here because I did most of it in the previous related bug. For this work, I've made sure the compat data is up-to-date: https://github.com/mdn/browser-compat-data/pull/2505 And moved the release notes info to apply to Firefox 62: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Releases/62#APIs_2 Does this look OK?
This looks great thank you!
