I want to hide some fields from Joomla front-end Profile editor (Editor, Timezone, Front-end Language).

There was a post on this exchange in 2014 that describes the procedure: Users >> User Manager >> Options, set Frontend User Parameters to hide.

But I can't find User Manager or Frontend User Parameters in Joomla 3.8.x. Did Joomla disable this settings or move it to somewhere else?

You can find the option to hide Frontend User Parameters by accessing the User component options.

User > User Manager > click Options in the top-right corner. You will find the option you are looking for in the User Options tab. It should be the third toggle from the bottom.
