See "Methodology" in https://data.firefox.com/

*Non-personal and non-private data* like your OS and 32 vs 64-bit doesn't require opt-in (even under GDPR). Note that it is required in order to serve security updates for example, or in the SSE2 case described before, to stop users from updating into a build that they can't launch.

More elaborate telemetry, including things that could potentially be private, is (IIRC) through an opt-in banner that's displayed during one of the first runs.
