Description

This bug is to see what needs to be done to request resetting a Nightly flag to the default:

extensions.legacy.enabled = false

Users can override and allow legacy add-ons to run, but that has a negative impact on our data quality.

Currently ~3.2% of users have set the flag to True.  

What is the process and timing to request resetting the flag to False?

I don't think this is the right component for this bug - this is probably a Firefox product issue?

Hey Ben, we were told balrog updates could be used for pref resets. Assuming this needs some code changes in product, could you point us at what's involved?

resolving as won't fix, due to Legacy usage in Nightly decreasing enough and 57 data filtering out Legacy add-ons.
