User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0
Build ID: 20170408100422

Steps to reproduce:

(the new) about:preferences#privacy -> Tracking Protection


Actual results:

the block list selection dialog is gone, but localization for it is still implemented as we can see here:
https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/locales/en-US/chrome/browser/preferences/preferences.properties#47
https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/modules/libpref/init/all.js#5255


Expected results:

I think that the button was removed by mistake.

Jared, is it expected the buttons about exceptions and block list have disappeared after bug 1335907?
Blocks: 1335907
Component: Tracking Protection → Preferences
Flags: needinfo?(jaws)
See Also: → 1286656
These should not have been removed. Thank you for reporting this issue.

I searched through the other /browser/components/preferences/in-content/*.xul files to see if there were other hidden sections like this but didn't find any.
I was surprised that bug 1286656 wasn't fixed with the nice rearrangement of the settings page. Maybe you could fix this next? I just want to unterline that the OK button of the Do No Track widget is cut off in the lower half on my Nightly/Debian testing+KDE as before the rearrangement.
