 In #16336, we disabled the User Timing API by setting
 `odm.enable_user_timing` = `false`. Support for this pref was removed as
 of Firefox 55; see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1344669.

 We should do patch Firefox to resurrect support for this pref or do
 something else to mitigate the fingerprinting potential of this feature.
