The discussion is happening on dev-platform, this bug tracks the implementation.
Just make sure that you don't break app: at the same time since it's jar:file: in disguise.

Posted the site compatibility doc: https://www.fxsitecompat.com/en-US/docs/2015/jar-protocol-support-has-been-disabled-by-default/
Updated https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Security/Security_and_the_jar_protocol (which is also moved from its old top-of-site URL) and listed on https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Releases/45.
for easier reference here is the link to the dev.platform discussion https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/mozilla.dev.platform/$20jar$3A$20URIs/mozilla.dev.platform/CFd4w8GzdEI/0DDE_cF8BAAJ Eric, is there a place on MDN (or could their be) that lists out all the upcoming things we might do, or plan to do, that have the possibility of braking web compat or that we know for sure that will? Getting more web dev's and app developers to look at this kind of centralize resource page, and helping them a way to find their way to the appropriate discussion, and understanding the upcoming schedule for compat breaking changes might be a way of avoiding discovery of incompatibilities *after* we ship and help in the timing and staging of changes like this one.

That's exactly what I'm working on: https://www.fxsitecompat.com/en-CA/versions/future/
Updating the flags as per Bug 1255139.
Updating the flags again. We should probably try this again with Firefox 53, given that 52 will be the next ESR.
Given IBM fixed their iNotes issue in May and enterprise users will/should be using Firefox 52 ESR, Firefox 53 shipping in April 2017 could be the new target.

Kohei, please don't reopen bugs that have patches landed. If you want to reopen the discussion to drop remote jar: URIs again, please file a new bug. Also note that the telemetry probe which we have for this <https://telemetry.mozilla.org/new-pipeline/dist.html#!cumulative=0&end_date=2016-10-19&keys=__none__!__none__!__none__&max_channel_version=release%252F49&measure=REMOTE_JAR_PROTOCOL_USED&min_channel_version=release%252F47&product=Firefox&sanitize=1&sort_keys=submissions&start_date=2016-09-16&table=0&trim=1&use_submission_date=0> still shows users hitting this in the wild, we will not consider removing this again at this point before that probe drops down to about 0.
The patch here has been backed out in Bug 1255139, so this bug should still be open I guess...?
See bug 1329336 for a new attempt at making this change.
