@garrett-eclipse thanks for the patch!

I've just skimmed through the code and noticed that the the $change_notice should also be removed from the Settings menu as well. For a little bit more help & in depth look of what was changed when these bubbles where introduced you can review the commit at .

Not sure if we want to keep all the other checks and values as well but most likely they'll be handy for the notice I suppose.

Thanks for the catch @xkon I've removed the code for the 'Settings' as well in 46819.2.diff. I've left the other checks so they can be leveraged when re-introducing the notice. Cheers

In 45142:

Privacy: Remove the privacy changes bubble.

This notification was a little too intrustive, and suffered from being difficult to dismiss.

Props garrett-eclipse, xkon, ianbelanger.
Fixes #46819.
