    I checked in Firefox 67 Beta and it still shows the old about:config page. I'll wait to start updating the articles until the new about:config page is shown in Firefox 67 Beta or Release. Related: Bug 1529088 Hold the new HTML-based about:config to Nightly until Product has signed off RESOLVED FIXED in Firefox 67 ... which links to: Bug 1532703 Allow HTML-based about:config to ride the trains to release once Product has signed off NEW

    I still don't see the new about:config design in the latest Firefox Beta, v67.0 (64-bit) on Windows 7.

    Oops! I thought I had opened Beta, but I actually opened Nightly.

    Nevertheless, those will be the steps and information, I guess you will just need to go in and change the for statement when that feature is finally pushed through.

    Wesley, thanks for your work on this. I deferred your revision for now. Once the about:config redesign is implemented, you (or I) can re-edit the article and start work on the other articles I listed in the KB article forum thread.
