For beta and nightly, remove all UI around fastblock and turn the feature off by default:
browser.contentblocking.fastblock.ui.enabled  = false
browser.contentblocking.fastblock.control-center.ui.enabled = false
browser.fastblock.enabled = false

For beta, no global toggle.  (This requires no change, its already off in beta):
browser.contentblocking.global-toggle.enabled = false

For Nightly, keep the global toggle (this requires no change, it is already on in nightly):
browser.contentblocking.global-toggle.enabled = true

Also, let's remove the special-case for beta/release here: https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/c56977420df7a1b692ce0f7e499ddb364d9fd7b2/modules/libpref/init/all.js#5913-5917

and have a single "pref("browser.fastblock.limit", 20000);".

Could someone please share some details on why this was disabled and removed from the Firefox roadmap?
