 I don't think this is a dup of #21321 because I don't think there's a need
 to convince mozilla about .onion being secure or not and my reasons are:

 1) Using .onion on plain Firefox is indeed NOT secure and I think it is
 smart if Firefox users get this warning in case they've proxied their
 browser to use Tor.

 2) I thought a bit about whether I should open this ticket here or on
 their ticketing system and I decided here because regardless of their
 decision, this seems to be our responsibility to make sure within the Tor
 Browser, .onion sites are labeled correctly.

 So if you don't mind, I'm going to reopen this ticket.
