Change to UI for 66: Adjust the cookies and trackers sub-panels in cases in which all are enabled.
We need to add this to the work for 66.

We'd need new strings and ideally a design for this. :)

This is listed on https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Bey2eHjv_V5KmqVNVz07wq8R9txPX450_SWa1MYVXtE/edit#gid=165612574 as "must have" for 66. Looks like it is not ready to land for 66 and will need to slip to 67. Is that the case or is this something that absolutely has to make it into 66?

Great question, I'll try to follow up with UX on this. Keeping needinfo.

For when trackers are present, keep Tracker sub-panel as-is. No string changes for 66. Bryan will post follow-up comment explaining our UX rationale there.

For Cookies and Site data sub-panel string in blue box should read: To block Tracking Cookies, set Content Blocking to “Strict.”

Thank you!

Liz, we'll try to get this into 66, but it's really not a risky change (just has copy, hence the rush).

Should the blue box always show when content blocking is not set to strict or should it only only show when no cookies on the page were blocked?

I think this depends on the default value of network.cookie.cookieBehavior. If the default value is 0 (i.e no cookies are blocked by default or in Standard mode), then the string should say this, since Strict will block tracking cookies but Standard will not.

If the default value is not 0 (i.e. it is 4 and by default we block tracking cookies), I'm not sure what it should say. In the case, the user opted out of the "Standard" category that would have by default blocked tracking cookies. We should tell them to enable Standard settings (instead of Strict which also blocks Trackers).

Its been a while since we discussed this, so I don't quite remember - are we adding the blue label at the bottom in order to help the user understand whether content is blocked or loaded?

We met and decided we don't need this in 66 after all, sorry for the confusion.
