    Is there or will there be documentation that describes the schema for the ultimate data set available publicly, complete and accurate?

Yes. This collection is documented in [Activity Stream's data documentation](

    Is there a control mechanism that allows the user to turn the data collection on and off?

Yes. This collection can be controlled through Firefox's Preferences.

    If the request is for permanent data collection, is there someone who will monitor the data over time?

Yes, Nan Jiang is responsible.

    Using the category system of data types on the Mozilla wiki, what collection type of data do the requested measurements fall under?

Category 2, Interaction.

    Is the data collection request for default-on or default-off?

Default on for all channels.

    Does the instrumentation include the addition of any new identifiers?


    Is the data collection covered by the existing Firefox privacy notice?


    Does there need to be a check-in in the future to determine whether to renew the data?

No. This collection is permanent.

I have verified this issue with the latest Firefox Nightly (71.0a1 Build ID - 20191014095234) installed, on Windows 10 x64, Arch Linux and Mac 10.14.6. Now, I can confirm that "full_page_d-supercharge" and "full_page_e-supercharge" variants are respecting the design specs from here.
