    Continued from /forums/contributors/704981?page=4#post-42599 this article is linked from http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/legal/privacy/firefox.html so maybe it should continue to be maintained.

    I agree because while there's an alternative for the automated update service disabling (redirect to Advanced panel - Accessibility, browsing, network, updates, and other advanced settings in Firefox instead), there's no alternative for the blocklist feature disabling.

    But it must be in the admin article category like the Firefox Integrity Check article or relevant to nothing so that it can't be searched.

    I updated it. It needs review.

    Why should this article be placed in the Administration category and excluded from normal searches? Just because it is linked from a mozilla.org page? ... In any case, we still don't have clarity on the process for un-archiving and updating articles, as I asked here: /en-US/forums/contributors/704981?page=3#post-41956

    You're right, we can let it searchable if it's unarchived.

    Whatever its archiving status decided by an admin, a reviewer can approve the revision in pending review.

    Assuming an admin decision is needed, I'd rather wait for an admin to decide whether to un-archive this article and keep it maintained.

    If an admin decision isn't needed then I'd rather do both at once (unarchive the article and then immediately approve the pending revision) so that the article shows up on the KB dashboard, as a change that hasn't yet been localized.

    I went ahead and un-archived this article, since there has not been any reply by admin to this thread. There also hasn't been any reply to my posts asking for policy clarification for unarchiving articles ... see my last post here: /forums/contributors/704981?page=4#post-42610

    After un-archiving this article, I approved the last revision by scoobidiver. I also made one small edit to that revision, to add "to open the Where to find and manage downloaded files in Firefox" after the keyboard instructions, which is still pending. I consider that a minor edit but I didn't approve it myself, to give admin another chance to review.
