So far I've noticed this on Windows10 and Ubuntu 16.04 consoles. (53/52)

Console warnings and errors shown while Password manager is being used.

1. Open FF.
2. Open any http page. 
3. Save a few logins.
4. Reload the http page and pick an u/p.
5. Check console output.

Actual Result:
Contextual warning message is displayed.
U/p are filled in. 

1. " console.warn: nsLoginManager: searchLogins: `formSubmitURL` or `httpRealm` is recommended"
(i've got this in windows 10 as well as in Ubuntu 16.04 but I didn't catch the exact moment when this is thrown)
2. ERROR - ContextualIdentityService - Unknown version found in /home/adrian.florinescu/.mozilla/firefox/xfac2i83.az2s/containers.json
(I'm guessing it might be related to the fact that I've run 51 with a profile created on 53)

Expected Result:
There should be no console errors/warnings.

I can't reproduce this on OS X. I added the warning so know what it's about and I suspect it's harmless but would still like to understand what changed.
