    I don't know whether this article will be un-archived and updated but Firefox will include a new Permissions Manager as part of the changes being made to preference panels (about:preferences) in Firefox 55.

    I'm guessing that Joni is working on new articles for the upcoming changes. I started a discussion thread while on Lithium, which can be viewed here: https://hwsfp35778.lithium.com/t5/Knowledge-Base-L10n-Discussions/Firefox-55-options-preferences-changes/m-p/1385102

    Looks like the preference changes will take place in the Firefox 56 release instead of 55. Ref: Bug 1365133 Updated Preferences re-org according to proposal from May 11th
