[Affected versions]:
- 63.0b3, 64.0b10, 65.0a1 (2018-11-20)  

[Affected platforms]:
- win10x64

[Steps to reproduce]:
1. Launch Firefox;
2. Access  about:addons
3. Click on the Plugins section;
4. Press the TAB key until [Ask to activate] is brought into focus;
5. Click on that button;
6. Click on any plugin from the list;

[Expected result]:
- the dropdown menu is displayed properly;

[Actual result]:
- the button expands a few pixels on tab_focus;
* steps 4-5: the Options button is pushed to the left;
- issues encountered for the buttons with this format(in both sections at step 4 and 6)

[Regression range]:
- checking for regression I considered the width issue as bad for the button at step 6, in between there where versions in which the buttons on steps 4-5 appeared to not have this issue;
- bug 1498632 appears to be at fault;

[Additional notes]:
- attached screen capture with issue;
- issue is best visible for steps 4+5;
- macOS(10.13) and Ubuntu(16.04) are not affected by this issue;
- around 63.0a1(20180801223951) the text shifted on clicks, but that might be intended for UX;
Hey Emilio, mind confirming if this is the case?
Thank you!

Looks really unlikely given my patch affects only input[type="date"] and input[type="time"], and is a CSS-only change.

Rechecked with mozregression and it had the same result.

For the buttons at steps 4-5 
- last good: 2018-10-15 changeset: 4c11ab0cd98950983cfc957f579ace6c3e918a43
- first bad: 2018-10-19 changeset: 9e9ca4e2ef17b85d0e49979049b227f3bd9915b1
when running mozregression on this issue, i land on bug 1471544 as having introduced the behaviour.

Not sure why this introduced the regression, but an outline seems the right way of styling this.

Verified with 65.0a1 (2018-11-22) - Windows 10x64.
Issue is no longer reproducible on both the buttons from step 4 and 6.
Did you want to request Beta approval on this, Paolo?

I don't know, but maybe not, given this is minor enough, and there's a small chance of styling regression somewhere else.

Fx64 RC week is next week, so let's let this ride the trains then. Thanks!
