Special:MobileOptions 'checkboxes' are confusing
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The checkboxes on this page look like slide controls that would instantly save yet you have to hit the save button to opt in.

I suspect this a UX nightmare and many people will slide the controls but not hit save.

Thus I suggest using mw-ui-checkbox from core for the time being and killing this styling.

Later we should make them real slide controls that do not need a submit button.
Thoughts?

We should switch these to use mw-ui-checkbox [1]
