I have verified this issue and is no longer reproducible on Latest Firefox Nightly 71.0a1 (Build ID: 20190902213933) and Firefox Beta 70.0b3 (Build ID: 20190902191027) on Windows 10 x64, Mac 10.14.5 and Arch Linux 4.16.6 x64.
The "info" and "Dismiss" buttons are accessible through keyboard navigation. However, the "Dismiss" button does not have a focus effect although is selected and I logged the following issue: bug 1554739.
