According to Photon visual redesign, the Help button has been moved to bottom left side of Preferences. https://mozilla.invisionapp.com/share/X8BGCX9PD#/screens/244683005 As a result, this issue is invalid.
Before landing Photon structure, Clicking ? button jumps to associated help page. in this case, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/applications-panel-set-how-firefox-handles-files?redirectlocale=en-US&as=u&redirectslug=Options+window+-+Applications+panel&utm_source=inproduct After landing Photon structure, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox/manage-preferences-and-add-ons-firefox/install-and-manage-add-ons Convenience of HELP has declined markedly. This fact is definitely regression. NOT INVALID

The help button used to be associated with a helpTopic, which pointed to different help topics at https://support.mozilla.org. But now you always end up at https://support.mozilla.org/1/firefox/57.0a1/Darwin/en-US/preferences when clicking the button. (moving this to Firefox, since this code is in /browser)

It looks like https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-options-preferences-and-settings is more updated. ricky, should we change the link to this page?
Summary: Lack of HELP button in New Preferences page → Help button doesn't link to preference-specific articles
The current SUMO website will redirect https://support.mozilla.org/1/firefox/58.0a1/Darwin/en-US/preferences to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox/manage-preferences-and-add-ons-firefox But I agree that it would be more useful if we can redirect to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-options-preferences-and-settings I believe this is a url redirect issue of SUMO site like (bug 1394746), which can be done in SUMO website instead of patching in-product link. Joni, could you help us fix the link?

Thanks for looking me in, Ricky. I've changed the link and it works on my end. Please let me know if you need anything else.
Thanks! it works :)
