Currently the new preferences are only enabled by default in Nightly builds[1]. We will need to change this if we ship the new re-org + search in 56.

@timdream, can you verify that this is the plan and coordinate with the team to make sure this gets fixed?

Yes! The intention is to have the new Preferences along with search to ride the 56 train. Let's turn it on once we get a mid-Nightly sign-off from QE.

We're basically a day away from 56 merging to Beta (Wednesday morning). This needs to be done ASAP.

\o/ Let's put the spaghetti in the machine!
FYI, just to comment in the bug. We received a sign-off from QE on July 7th.

Snippet from their email...

ABOUT:PREFERENCES REVAMP

Feature sign off report, Manual QA
Target GA: Firefox 56 - September 26, 2017.
Sign off phase: mid-Nightly (Fx56).

MANUAL QA'S ASSESSMENT & RECOMMENDATION
Feature status: GREEN.

    Reason: 30% of our tests failed, but none of them with major issues.

Recommendation: SHIP IT

    Reason: 2 new issues were uncovered during testing (1378783, 1378366), but are minor issues and are reproducible also on Firefox 54.0.1 RC and Firefox 55 so aren't necessarily related to this feature. 
    Proposed course of action: Fix these issues in order to improve this features health status before the merge to beta.
