    Joni added these instructions for fx57 but they're for Firefox 58:

    How to turn Tracking Protection on

    {for fx57}You can choose to turn Tracking Protection on all the time, for Private Browsing only or not at all. You may choose to disable Tracking Protection for a particular site or for all sites.

    1. Click {menu Privacy & Security} on the left and go to the Tracking Protection section.
    2. Choose between the following options:
      • Always: Keep Tracking Protection on as you browse.
      • Only in private windows: Turns Tracking Protection on only if you're using Private Browsing.
      • Never: Turns off Tracking Protection for all sites.

    I'll set up a [Fx58] Needs Change entry and edit the article for fx57.

    Looks like Joni made the revision on purpose. See Bug 1409192 - Tracking Protection page is only about Private Browsing

    I'll add a comment to the bug report.

    Obviously the article name was also updated for the same reason.
