After a search on MozSearch, I have discovered a few instances where we are shipping code including noninclusive language. We need to ensure we have replaced these instances with more inclusive terms.

We do not need to replace terms found in included 3rd party codebases.

Blacklist -> Blocklist
Whitelist -> Allowlist
Master -> Root/Core/Default/Control

Blacklist references
Whitelist references
Master references

Consider about patching exoplayer upstream.

Master -> Root/Core/Default/Control

In the context of Master Password, Global would seem more appropriate, although it should probably be decided across all products, as that's terminology that can be found in e.g desktop Firefox.
