Back in the day, after we had disabled about:feedback, we changed the feedback link under preferences to point to our Google+ beta community (#2354). Later, we replaced this with a redirect (#2479). However, since we reactivated about:feedback, we can revert those changes again.

What to change

Change the target of the settings item Give feedback under Settings -> Adblock Browser back to about:feedback. The code in question should be identical to the upstream (i.e. Mozilla) version again.

Since Firefox 47 about:feedback was replaced with page hosted on (see: The url also contains MOZ_UPDATE_CHANNEL and MOZ_APP_VERSION.

I guess due to this change, the last sentence in the ticket is not valid anymore and we will just link to about:feedback again?

How I understand that bug you linked to, about:feedback itself is not local anymore but pointing to a page hosted on That means that we have to leave this link alone.

It also means that we have to either:

a) Replace about:feedback with a local page.
b) Remove about:feedback, and the mechanism that automatically opens it after a few launches of the app.

But we should create a separate issue for that.
