 Replying to [comment:2 arthuredelstein]:
 > I've written patches for this, because it's going to make the problems I
 encountered in #18093 much easier to solve.
 yay :)
 > There are 6 patches here (in which I remove checkboxes one by one and
 then clean up the UI):
 > https://github.com/arthuredelstein/torbutton/commits/20244
 And rename "Privacy and Security Settings..." menu item?
 > and 2 patches here (where I add two checkboxes to the
 about:preferences#privacy page):
 > https://github.com/arthuredelstein/tor-browser/commits/20244
 "Restrict third party..." has "strange" relations with FF's "Third party
 cookies" option, so the layout should reflect the dependencies.
 > 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.
 It's good to get this upsteamed while Mozilla is in `mozilla52`: behind a
 pref as resistFingerprinting and first-party isolation, but also
 Mozillians could make suggestions about naming, layout, hints, etc in the
 FF's UI.
