- reproducible on Win10x64 as well;
- using mozregression, was able only to come up with the following pushlog:

- Up until this version the (x) button is not even displayed.
This is one of those regressions that happened a while ago so I'd prefer we don't track it like other regressions.
Priority: -- → P2
Andrew, given that we have shipped multiple versions with this regression and that it is an unassigned P2, could we get this bug retriaged to either lower its priority or get it assigned to somebody if we still think this should be fixed in the next releases? Thanks
Good questions, Pascal! I'll let Hsin-Yi make that call :)
Flags: needinfo?(overholt) → needinfo?(htsai)
Thanks for the question, Pascal. 
When I used a mouse hovering over the leave button, the hover state didn't change and there still showed a cursor rather than a pointer. I seems like something wrong with event target determination. So moving to Event handling component, hopefully it's a better fit... ... 

I looked into reported bugs to have some idea about the volume of this unexpected behavior. There are some incorrect event target bugs but no obvious one having a similar situation regards element overlapping. According to the age of this issue and low report volume, I am going to set this as P3 for now.
Component: DOM: Core & HTML → Event Handling
Flags: needinfo?(htsai)
Priority: P2 → P3
Happy to take a patch in nightly; if it seems low risk enough please feel free to request uplift to 65 beta.
Component: Event Handling → User events and focus handling
