Description

11 months ago
Tracking Protection has been established as a permanent part of Firefox and there is no realistic outlook of this pref ever turning to false. With the changes coming up for content blocking (bug 1476217), Tracking Protection is going to become the default vs. the new Content Blocking, which is behind a pref again.

Having both the Tracking Protection and Content Blocking UI behind a pref is just confusing. Let's get rid of privacy.trackingprotection.ui.enabled.
