Go to about:preferences, open Page Info -> Security. Nothing in there has really any use and some parts are also wrong (especially "Have I visited this site before"). We should just disable it on about: pages.

I'd like to work on this. Could you point me in the right direction?
Of course! The code for the security view lives in https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/base/content/pageinfo/security.js The relevant part of code is located in the securityOnLoad function: https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/e9a067a401e41017766f4ab90bc3906603273d51/browser/base/content/pageinfo/security.js#169 Here we do a call to _getSecurityInfo and hide the tab if no security info is available. You could add a check in _getSecurityInfo that compares the scheme of the uri with "about" and returns null if they are the same. Does that make sense to you? :) Thanks!

Hey Arjun, are you still working on this? Do you need any more help? Thanks! :)
I'm extremely sorry for the delay! The past couple of weeks have been very busy for me (I'm a grad student in US). I am still interested in working on this. I should be able to find time to work on this before next Monday. Does that work?

Sure, no worries, just wanted to check in on this :)
This is the change I have done so far. At the moment I'm hiding the security tab rather disabling it (as per comment 1). Should I disable the security view? I've done manual testing, and it seems to work. The diff output has been attached; let me know if it looks good or I need to make further changes.
Comment on attachment 8949255 [details] [diff] [review] bug1430060_diff.patch Sorry for the delay. This is the correct code to change, but you will need to use uri.scheme, and please use dot-notation (uri.scheme) and double-quotes ("about:"). Thanks!
