    This article was updated for Firefox 36 a couple of days ago, with new screenshots for in-content preferences. Looks like this change won't be occurring in Firefox 36 after all but will occur in Firefox 38. See:

    I updated to Firefox 36 Beta 5 and now I have the old Options/Preferences window again! Do you have it, too? It seems we don't have to update the articles.

    i think firefox 38 might be targeted as release for the new preferences ui: https://msujaws.wordpress.com/2015/01/31/status-update-in-content-preferences-part-4/

    There's a revision pending to restore the old search preferences screenshots for fx36.

    Minor nit, but when this gets reversed because in-content is introduced on Release it may be an improvement to show a highlighted search engine in the removal screenshot.

    It is included in the instructions to select a search engine for removal, but that is not what is shown, and so the remove button will remain greyed out.

    Example (not up to kb standard) width 400 with an additional search engine selected for removal.

    Current (but remmed out) image 400

    Yes, I agree. I'll add a "Needs changes" comment to revisit this when/if in-content returns.
