To be more clear - I do understand that is a new feature but the bug is not about the presence of the message but the form of it. It looks choppy and as a user I would thing the software is broken by its looks (truncated etc) 
For Mobile Android there are different types of notifications (toast, etc) that are not as intrusive (here it appears with the usernames which feels wrong IMHO)
Is the problem that it is in the username field as opposed to the password field?  We have included it in both.  Or is the problem the general appearance of the warning?

General appearance - not as user expected and it might scare them (IMHO)
The warning message issues related to width and scroll have been handled as bug work in bug 1317882, bug 1324918, bug 1324918
The Insecure contextual message is expected to be a bit scary: its purpose is to raise awareness in users and as well in web masters in order to have login forms migrate from http to https.
