    I removed the fx3 content, fixed nested lists, removed the duplicated keyword, removed Linux from Win screenshots, declared screenshots without the Sync panel as fx35 specific. It needs review.

    I have a problem with declaring the screenshots without the Sync panel icon showing in the Options window as fx5 fx35 specific and then hiding them from Firefox 4 and above, if you aren't going to add new screenshots. I think it's fine to show the screenshot if it is important to point out what needs to be clicked (the "Show Cookies" button in this case) if the only difference is that the Sync panel icon is missing from the Options window, if the rest of the Privacy panel information is the same.

    Using similar logic, wouldn't you have to declare any screenshot that doesn't show the Tracking option in the Settings for privacy, browsing history and do-not-track (as shown here for Windows, fx5) as either Firefox 4 only using {for =fx4} (with Sync panel icon) or {for fx35} (no Sync panel)?

    See /forums/knowledge-base-articles/707035 for a discussion about the screenshot policy according to Firefox versions.

    In a new revision, I added the Fx5 Show Cookies screenshot for Windows, but not the Firefox 4 one as it is no longer maintained.

    would it also be possible to make deleting all cookies more clear for fx5 on windows Vista, 7? I don't think most users can get to or know how to get to the tools menu.

    In a new revision, I fixed the fx4 menu path for the "Delete all cookies" section. It needs review.

    Followup on whether or not to show [[Image:Deleting Cookies Fx 5 - Win1]] for Firefox 4:

    Generally, I think showing this image to Firefox 4 users should not be a problem because the article has nothing to do with the tracking feature and showing this image would also be fine because the article has nothing to do with the Sync panel or it's relationship to the Privacy panel.


    In any case, I have no problem with not showing the Firefox 5 screenshot for Firefox 4, which is no longer maintained.

    I went ahead and changed it so that the "deleting cookies" image would show for fx4 and marked it as ready for localization.
