 I've written patches for this, because it's going to make the problems I
 encountered in #18093 much easier to solve.

 There are 6 patches here (in which I remove checkboxes one by one and then
 clean up the UI):
 and 2 patches here (where I add two checkboxes to the
 about:preferences#privacy page):

 Note that the last torbutton patch adds an overlay so that the our
 translated checkbox labels can be temporarily applied to the
 about:preferences page. If Mozilla uplifts these to Firefox and translates
 the labels themselves, then we won't need this overlay any more.
