    I'm not sure what that person is referring to, but telemetry as well as telemetry-related components (Health Report, Experiments, SelfSupport, ...), behaviors, preferences, and even defaults have changed over the years. There is some documentation here:

    https://gecko.readthedocs.org/en/latest/toolkit/components/telemetry/telemetry/index.html

    I'm not certain what that is built from, but I suspect it may be from what is in Mozilla Central. You can also look at the doc files for specific branches:

    https://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-release/source/toolkit/components/telemetry/docs/
    https://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/components/telemetry/docs/

    plus the source code of interest.

    Thank you! The gecko link is most informative: https://gecko.readthedocs.org/en/latest/toolkit/components/telemetry/telemetry/preferences.html
