 > 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
 > 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.

 I think I am not convinced. Care to elaborate on that point in #21321?

 > 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.

 We can have this conversation in #21321 as I think we can move both
 aspects forward (write a patch for Tor Browser in a way that it gets
 upstreamed to Mozilla and get Mozilla "convinced"). At least it would be
 useful to have both conversations in one place I think.
