Note that the article is currently linked from the release build as well, so I wouldn't change it immediately, but yeah, we should update the article before the new changes go into release.

I recently updated https://support.mozilla.org/kb/delete-cookies-remove-info-websites-stored for fx60 and it includes more detailed information on managing cookies and site data for a single domain. I think that the two articles should be cross-linked or possibly merged.
Redirecting the NI to Cristian.

The Apr 24, 2018 update to the article was not marked ready for localization and there are still NeedInfo requests pending. I  made some new edits to https://support.mozilla.org/kb/storage and I published my revisions without marking the changes ready to localize.  A localizer is now asking in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/storage/discuss/7238?#post-16488 whether it is possible to translate the updated article.

This looks pretty good to me, thank you for updating the articles!

One thing I was wondering is whether it would make sense to merge these two articles somehow:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/delete-cookies-remove-info-websites-stored
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/storage

Since they both address the same basic issue (deleting stuff websites know about you), but they don't convey what we intended to convey with our new UI (that localStorage and cookies go hand in hand and you probably want to delete both in most non-developer use cases).

I'll leave that up to Joni.

The Cookies and Site Data "Learn more" page https://support.mozilla.org/kb/storage has been updated for fx63. The related article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/delete-cookies-remove-info-websites-stored article mentioned in comment 12 has also been updated for fx63. Can this bug be closed?
That seems good to me, thanks!
