Preferences vs Settings.

site_settings_title
pref_private_data_siteSettings

In general we use "settings" on Android, not "preferences". Also, in both cases, it's really more about permissions than preferences (although not for passwords, but that's maybe a site-vs-browser issue that users don't need to worry about).

Also, while we're dealing with these strings, "Clear Site Settings" should really have an ellipsis. I'm not sure if a bug has been filed about that in the past.

There was a similar discussion in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=754335#c41.

Aaron - What parts of the UI are we talking about here? (Screenshots?)
Settings -> Clear private data -> "Site preferences"

vs.

Menu button -> "Clear Site Settings"

Do these even clear the same things ?

I agree with Aaron. I think we should s/Site preferences/Site settings.

I'm not sure how we even ended up with preferences in the string. The entity is named pref_private_data_siteSettings.
+1 for "Site settings"
