    The first revision for this new "Administration" category article comment is placeholder for privacy campaign with the content, Forget button Do not track Private browsing Lightbeam Privacy add on collection.

    The current version of this article seems to be more about promoting Mozilla's new Lightbeam add-on for Firefox, since it's the very first section. I think it belongs as a link under the "Privacy add-ons" section at the end.

    To Joni: I don't know the background for this article but if marketing (Engagement?) asked you to promote this add-on then you could mention it at the end of the article, with a link to the Lightbeam add-on page. The add-ons page has lots more information about reviews, feedback, and where to get support or report Lightbeam issues.

    Hi Alice,

    Marketing asked for a page that they can link to from their Privacy Day Campaign newsletter, and they did ask us to highlight Lightbeam as a separate "tip". I'll add a link to the add-on page. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Thanks, Joni.

    I see from a related bug report [*] that Mozilla has a similar page: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/privacy/you/

    I still don't see why you want to place Lightbeam at the very top of the SuMo article, followed by other Firefox privacy add-ons in your pending revision. I would have concentrated on built-in privacy features like Do-Not-Track, Private Browsing mode and the Forget button.

    P.S. Here's another Mozilla page to show what I mean.

    https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/desktop/trust/

    It concentrates on the built-in privacy features of Firefox with links to related KB articles (the "Learn More" link, however, is outdated).

    I made a new revision to move the sections for Lightbeam and other privacy add-ons to the end of the article.
