    I checked in Firefox 56 Beta and the "How to view your Firefox Health Report" section no longer applies. Disregard. I checked again today (Sept 15) in Firefox Beta 56.0b12 (64-bit) on Windows 7. "Firefox Health Report" appears in the Help menu and takes you to the about:healthreport page. You can still get to the Firefox Health Report by entering about:healthreport in the address bar ... at least it still works in Firefox 56 Beta.

    The "How to turn data sharing on or off" section is also wrong for Firefox 56, since the Advanced panel is gone. The Firefox 56 Privacy & Security panel now has an option to allow Firefox to send technical and interactive data to Mozilla, under the "Firefox Data Collection and Use" section. The "Learn more" link next to that option goes to https://www.mozilla.org/legal/privacy/firefox.html#health-report

    P.S. I approved the pending revision and added a [fx56] Needs Change entry.

    a bit of background is also in this blog post - https://blog.mozilla.org/futurereleases/2017/09/06/data-just-living/ not sure if we need some input from those data teams on how we should deal with the existing article...

    I made a revision to the "How to turn data sharing on or off" section of the article for fx56. I added {for not fx56} tags around the part of the article that begins with "You can also turn sharing on or off with these steps:" which describes the Advanced Panel Data Choices tab settings.

    That way, for Firefox 56 and above, only these instructions will be shown:


    Data sharing is on by default but you can always turn it on or off from the top of any Firefox Health Report page. Click on the {button Data Sharing} button on the upper right corner of the page.

    firefox-health-report-page

    I'll leave it pending review for the time being, to geve philipp and Joni a chance to look over my changes.

    P.S. the Share data with Mozilla to help improve Firefox article will also need to be updated for fx56 and rewritten or combined with this article. Related discussion: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/share-telemetry-data-mozilla-help-improve-firefox/discuss/7189

    I made a second revision to add the following for fx56:

    {for fx56} You can also turn sharing on or off with these steps:

    1. [[T:optionspreferences]]
    2. Select the {menu Privacy & Security} panel.
    3. Scroll down to the Firefox Data Collection and Use section.
    4. Check or uncheck the box next to Allow Firefox to automatically send technical and interraction data to Mozilla.

    Joni approved my pending revision RFL ... and I made another one to fix a typo and to remove "automatically" for fx57 (bug 1383130).

    I also set up a [Fx57] "Needs change" entry to review the status and to add a new screenshot for fx57.
