Currently Firefox links to this page from the tracking protection setting in about:preferences: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tracking-protection-pbm?as=u&utm_source=inproduct which is fine on release. On Nightly however, there is a pref to enable TP outside of Private Browsing as well. Also, starting in 57, we will be starting to expose that 3-level setting to users. We also have this old unmaintained page on SUMO: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tracking-protection-firefox I can see two different approaches to supporting 57: 1. We update the tracking-protection-firefox page link to either tracking-protection-firefox or tracking-protection-pbm from the product depending on which UI is shown. 2. We merge the two SUMO pages and discuss both versions of the TP setting (either the tri-state radio buttons or the checkbox).
Given that we are going ahead with the full tracking protection options (i.e. what used to be the Nightly UI) in 57 (see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1393627#c5) and that we no longer have time to change the in-product links, we probably need to go with #2 and repurpose the tracking-protection-pbm page.
ran into francois in the vancouver office today, Firefox needs this i.e. comment 1 to be done for 57. Unfortunately, this decision was only made the morning of friday november 3rd, 2017, so i guess the right thing is to assign to you joni and setting to P1 to get it done quickly.

I've updated this article to reflect the three options in Nightly. I've also changed the title and fixed the redirect to expand the messaging to beyond Private Browsing. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tracking-protection
Thanks Joni for the incredibly quick turn-around!

It turns out Fennec also changed its tracking protection preferences in bug 1399014. Joni, any chance we could get the Fennec SUMO page updated as well? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tracking-protection-firefox-android

I thought you had mixed up Nightly with Beta. Related discussion: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tracking-protection/discuss/7289 [Fx58] Tracking Protection settings changed in Firefox 58 Nightly
I made a new revision that includes Joni's last update. See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tracking-protection/history
Sorry, Alice. I forgot to paste the bug info in my haste. François, I've updated the Android article as well. Thanks for flagging this.
Thank you Alice and Joni!
