    More fallout:

    Like I said before, the first "Learn More" section of Mozilla's Firefox Browser Privacy Notice links to https://support.mozilla.org/kb/how-stop-firefox-automatically-making-connections#w_auto-update-checking

    I just checked that link and it takes you to the end of the article now. It used to take you to the "Auto-update checking" section.

    Bug 1142285 - in article with collapsed sections <h1> headings are not shown properly when used with {for} The affected headings are "Loopback connection" {for not linux} and "Infected with malware" {for win}. If it looks like this bug will be around for awhile, we could remove {for} from the two affected headings and add a note. I have a pending revision to do that (plus a few other edits).

    For me, the removal of the {for} and adding a note instead sounds like a good idea. Because there might be people opening that page from another (e.g. Linux) than the affected (e.g. Windows) computer.

    And to the malware section: Linux (nor any other OS) is not invulnerable to malware. :)

    Thanks for the updates!

    i agree that the malware section should just be cross-system... i've changed that together with a few more updates (search plugin loading, app reputation checks, and the send video to device workaround)

    I made a few small edits and marked the article ready to localize.

    Hello, here (Italian KB dashboard) no warning is shown. Moreover, it is impossible to detect new content since the "toggle diff" link doesn't appear.
