    Correction, this change apparently is in Beta now so it can be added under Firefox 63. Sorry I missed that.

    The arrangement of controls has changed:

    Default setting -- Accept does not allow blocking third party cookies:

    Fx64 (Nightly) Cookies - Accept

    Block setting provides access to a selector:

    Fx64 (Nightly) Cookies - Block

    I don't know whether this is in beta now (63) or only Nightly (64).

    Okay, I tried my hand at a new section for Firefox 63. that seemed much easier than trying to nest changes within the Firefox 60 section.

    Thanks. I made a few more edits and submitted a new revision. If it looks OK I can approve it. Can you take a look?

    Thanks, your revision tracks the dialogs more closely, I hadn't noticed those additional changes.

    For the "Note" for Firefox 63, I meant that if a more restrictive setting caused problems, the user could try a less restrictive setting. Since there are multiple levels now, I think maybe we need two phrases so I did a revision there. Hopefully it makes sense.

    Thanks for fixing the note. I made some edits to the wording. I also replaced your "Nightly" images with ones I made in Firefox 63 Beta.

    I'll wait awhile before I approve it, in case there's something else.
