Restrict third party cookies and other tracking data is unchecked in ESR52 based Tor Browser

Our first party isolation patches are activated right now (ESR 45 based Tor Browser) if the checkbox "Restrict third party cookies and other tracking data" is checked. But that's not the case anymore with an ESR 52 base. We should fix that or remove that checkbox altogether.

It might be a sign, though, that some of our first-party isolation code is not working. We should doublecheck that that's not the case

Oh, and when I check it, close the dialog and reopen it again, it is unchecked again.

Keywords: ff52-esr added; ff52esr removed

privacy.thirdparty.isolate was replaced by privacy.firstparty.isolate in Firefox. But were your patches changed accordingly?

I have a fixup patch at cda80ad28fa7c5508ae5686a6c0819fddc4cc595,
As far as I can tell, isolation is working and this was simply a bug in binding of the checkbox to the pref.
