Attached image PBM_TCP_Spotlight.gif

[Notes]:

  • Since the TCP is enabled by default in PBM, we should not show the TCP Spotlight (the “network.cookie.cookieBehavior.pbmode” pref is set to “5” in the “about:config” page).

[Affected versions]:

  • Firefox Release 100.0 (Build ID: 20220428192727)

[Affected Platforms]:

  • Windows 10 x64
  • Windows 11 x64
  • macOS 12.3.1
  • Ubuntu 20.04 x64

[Prerequisites]:

  • Have the Firefox Release 100.0 browser installed/extracted.
  • Have the "set MOZ_REMOTE_SETTINGS_DEVTOOLS=1" syntax ran into a terminal.
  • Have the user.js file saved on a new Firefox profile.
  • Have the Remote Settings Devtools addon installed.

[Steps to reproduce]:

  1. Open the Firefox browser with the profile from prerequisites.
  2. Navigate to the “about:config” page and change the “browser.privatebrowsing.autostart” pref set to true.
  3. Change the Prod environment to the Stage Preview using the Remote Settings Devtools add-on.
  4. Restart the browser and observe the behavior.

[Expected result]:

  • The TCP spotlight is not displayed.

[Actual result]:

  • The TCP spotlight is displayed.

[Additional notes]:

  • We also observed that the “network.cookie.cookieBehavior.pbmode” pref is missing from the rollout’s targeting.
  • Attached is a screen recording of the issue.
