The following Firefox probes will expire in the next major Firefox nightly release: version 80 [1].

WHEEL_INDEX
WHEEL_ACTION

What to do about this:

  1. If one, some, or all of the metrics are no longer needed, please remove them from their definitions files (Histograms.json, Scalars.yaml, Events.yaml).
  2. If one, some, or all of the metrics are still required, please submit a Data Collection Review [2] and patch to extend their expiry. There is a shorter form for data collection renewal [3].

If you have any problems, please ask for help on the #fx-metrics Slack channel or the #telemetry Matrix room at https://chat.mozilla.org/#/room/#telemetry:mozilla.org. We'll give you a hand.

This is pretty much a backout of bug 1638314. The probes have served their
purpose and there's no need to renew them, so we can just remove them.
