Is this something we should backport to Beta before we ship 68 or can this fix ride the trains?

Flags: needinfo?(ke5trel)

This is a very minor patch with a well-understood (desired) effect, so the risk of uplifting is minimal (and uplifting means that the fix will also be on ESR68). So I would not object if someone else requests an uplift for this patch.

Note that this a minor appearance issue for a feature that is off by default (bug 1519547). Although it does not look as designed (before the fix), the bug does not significantly degrade the user experience (the menu item still has a legible text label that explains its purpose), so I don't mind if the patch just rides the train.
