As the old Tabzilla is deprecated but many third-party sites are still using it, I think it makes sense to add a deprecation warning to the console to prompt site maintainers to update. We could add the message here: https://github.com/mozilla/bedrock/blob/master/bedrock/tabzilla/templates/tabzilla/tabzilla.js#L611-L617 We could use a message along the lines of: "The version of Tabzilla you are linking to is deprecated and will be removed in the future. Please update to the new static version here: https://github.com/mozilla/tabzilla/"

As I wrote somewhere else, my work-in-progress list of Mozilla sites using the old Tabzilla assets can be found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Vh8lAXh7cQ5VVBW8EWu7pTA1EaNVvpVplLFGPBELRHw

We'll give people a little time to hopefully see the console warning and act on it. In terms of the next action, I think it might be worth opening a bug to try and outreach to some of these sites if they don't upgrade.
