Suggested release notes: - Banner on the Hello panel informing Hello users of upcoming service termination in FF49
1.4.x includes a banner notifying of the shut-down of Hello. We want to ship it to the release population. Current suggested release notes in the user story. This bug is for tracking the patches, xpis & the work. Firefox 48 (release) currently has version 1.4.3 of the add-on. The version for this release is 1.4.4. The only functional change included in this release is the addition of the banner (bug 1284423).
Sylvestre, I added suggested release notes in the user story field, feel free to adjust if needed.
Bogdan, version 1.4.4 of the add-on is now available from AMO (and hence should be signed) for manual installing in FF 48 profiles (we'll only be releasing to 48.*) https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/firefox-hello-beta/ I'm going to get the add-on signed for go faster soon and will get it up tomorrow if all goes well.
I've updated Balrog and the update snippet is now on the release-sysaddon channel.

Just finished testing on Firefox 48 across platforms, the update mechanism using release-sysaddon channel works as expected.
[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: We need to land the add-on for 1.4.4 in mozilla-release so that its present for the 48.0.1 release. I'm currently working on a patch.
Comment on attachment 8781436 [details] [diff] [review] 1.4.4 patch for mozilla-release Approval Request Comment [Feature/regressing bug #]: Firefox Hello 1.4.4 - Removal warning banner addition. [User impact if declined]: The warning banner rolled out with yesterday's system update will disappear. [Describe test coverage new/current, TreeHerder]: Has the normal test coverage. [Risks and why]: Low, landing the shipped code in mozilla-release ahead of 48.0.1. Note: Its a big diff due to whitespace-only changes by one of the generating modules. I've gone through and visually spot checked that the changes we expect are there, and I've manually tested with a mozilla-release build. [String/UUID change made/needed]: None
qe-verify: Would be good to verify this in a release build when it lands/as part of the 48.0.1 release.
