ASR Snippets are being rolled out in 64 Release using Normandy's roll-out pref flipping mechanism.

Let's make this change permanent by uplifting a patch to pref ASR Snippets on in 65 beta after we have made sure the roll-out has gone as planned.

Tim, any updates on this? RC week is next week and there's only one more Beta build scheduled this week.

Snippets is being rolled out in 64, and is currently at 25%. Everything looks good so far. Nan, let's get this pref change landed and request uplift to beta.

I have verified this issue with the latest Firefox Beta (65.0b12 Build ID - 20190117232427) installed, on Windows 10 x64, Arch Linux and Mac 10.13.3. Now the ASR Snippets are on by default and are correctly triggered according to their targeting parameters.
