    I set up a "Needs change" entry to update this article for Firefox 36.

    Windows screenshot (Firefox 36 Beta5): /en-US/gallery/image/21206

    Under Tracking, Tell sites that I do not want to be tracked is now the only option. Other tracking options (Tell sites that I want to be tracked and Do not tell sites anything about my tracking preferences) have been removed.

    Note: There's already a revision to How do I turn on the Do Not Track feature? based on this change (I approved it).

    Done.

    It still needs Mac and Linux screenshots.

    I'm sorry. This article needs more updating then I first thought. The Location Bar section also needs updating, since there are three options now, History, Bookmarks and Open tabs, which can be selected in different combinations, or you can deselect all (no more drop-down list).

    I also noticed that another screenshot is needed when "Use custom settings for history" is selected. I uploaded this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/gallery/image/21214

    Thank you, both.

    I've updated the "Location Bar" section. I also took Alice's screenshot, cropped it, and added it to the History section.

    I'll wait a day before marking it RFL in case anyone catches any mistakes that I've missed.

    I made a new revision to add a placeholder for a Mac image next to the new Windows and Linux images at the top of the article. I moved the new, cropped {for fx36}[[Image:custom history fx36]]{/for}{/nowiki} under "Use custom settings for history" (you had it under the History section). I also removed some outdated {for} content for versions older than fx13. Could you review? I think I got it right.

    P.S. The Address bar autocomplete in Firefox - Search your bookmarks, history and tabs article, which is linked from the top of this article, also needs updating for fx36. I set up a Discussion thread and Needs change entry for that.

    Approved. Thanks, Alice. I've also revised the Address bar autocomplete in Firefox - Search your bookmarks, history and tabs article. I'll wait until someone looks at it with fresh eyes before self-reviewing it.

    Thanks! Joni
