Device: Huawei Honor (Android 5.1.1), Asus ZenPad 8 (Android 6.0.1);
Build: Nightly 57.0a1 (2017-08-30);
Prerequisite: Custom tabs are enabled in settings.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to; 
2. Tap on "Share" from doorhanger.
3. Tap on green lock.

Expected result:
A message is displayed with information about site and with option "Edit Site settings", option that clears the settings made for that site.

Actual result:
No "Edit Site settings" option is displayed to clear the settings made.
We probably can't do this in time for 57. GeckoView has no site permissions API and we'd also need someone to rewrite the frontend bits.

Snorp, is this feasible now? If so, please NI me.

[triage] Setting to P3 rank 0 because if GeckoView doesn't support this, it's not actionable.

GV still does not support anything around site settings currently.

Re-triaging per

I was able to reproduce the issue.

Tested with:
Browser / Version: Firefox Mobile Nightly 63.0a1 (2018-08-09)
Operating System: Sony Xperia Z5 Premium (Android 6.0.1)

Thank you!
Component: General → Custom Tabs

"Edit site settings" not displayed, regardless of Custom tabs being enabled or disabled.

This is infuriating as a garbage news media site I visited somehow got the privilege of sending push notifications through the Firefox app, and I have no way that I know of to revoke that privilege.


Device: Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (Android 8.0.0)
Build: [not sure, it's the current up to date "Firefox Browser fast & private" from Play Store (2019-07-30)] about:firefox says Firefox 68.0
Prerequisite: none, "Edit site settings" does never show

Is there a way this could be added as a feature for ESR?

I am closing this since this is a major new feature request for Fennec. Instead, I have filed the following Firefox Preview (Fenix) issue:
