    The Firefox 65 what's new page https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/65.0/whatsnew/?oldversion=64.0.2 links to https://support.mozilla.org/kb/tracking-protection which redirects to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/what-happened-tracking-protection?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=tracking-protection. That page doesn't have any link to the content blocking page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/content-blocking and even worse it links to turning on Do Not Track, which doesn't help improve privacy https://gizmodo.com/do-not-track-the-privacy-tool-used-by-millions-of-peop-1828868324 . (Not sure if that link is tied to this page or not...)

    Thanks for bringing this up. I've replaced the "See also" link to "Do not Track" with "Content blocking." I've also added a note to call out Content blocking specifically. <snip>


    Based on the above, I also removed the Description -> Related Documents link to the Content blocking article.
