    Firefox 46, 47 and Firefox 48 both have a new Privacy panel item, You can also manage your Do Not Track settings Screenshot using Firefox 47 (on Windows 7) fx47PrivacyPanel Fx46PrivacyPanel

    Clicking on the "manage your Do Not Track settings" link opens a Do Not Track dialog box with a Use Do Not Track checkbox (blank by default) and a "Learn more" link that goes to https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/dnt/

    Edit: here's the image and description of the Do Not Track dialog, from the How do I turn on the Do Not Track feature? article:
