I was shy enough to add MemoryTextureClient behind a pref and turn the pref on later on but nobody ever uses that pref anymore, and there is no reason to disable MemoryTextureClient. So now the pref is just polluting about:config and adding a potential divergence between the official config and what users run.

So let's remove the pref. The choice between MemoryTextureClient and ShmemTextureClient should be only dictated by whether we do cross-thread or cross-process sharing.

Even the DOM fuzzer wasn't using this pref, because of bug 937603.
