According to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1501004#c6 we will test the new certificate error pages in release.

We should enable them for the Beta population to have a larger test audience.

Bug 1504164 - Enable new certificate error pages on Beta by default. r=nhnt11

[Beta/Release Uplift Approval Request]

Feature/Bug causing the regression: None

User impact if declined: N/A, this is enabling a new feature (new certificate error pages) we'd like to test in Beta

Is this code covered by automated tests?: Yes

Has the fix been verified in Nightly?: No

Needs manual test from QE?: No

If yes, steps to reproduce: This feature already has its own QA assigned.

List of other uplifts needed: None

Risk to taking this patch: Low

Why is the change risky/not risky? (and alternatives if risky): Just a pref flip, limited to beta for now, will be QAed on Beta.

String changes made/needed: None

We're about to turn off "early beta" this week.  Is this still worth it?
Flags: needinfo?(jhofmann)
If we want to give this some exposure on the beta population in 64, an alternative to this patch that doesn't depend on EARLY_BETA is to run a shield pref experiment on beta, that would let us roll this out to a subset of users?
Another possibility would be to enable if MOZ_DEV_EDITION.
Actually, that's okay, since we're doing the shield study on 64 we'll bound to get beta exposure on 65 as well, that should be enough. Feel free to deny the approval. Thanks!

So, is the uplift still scheduled for next week? Should we still keep this feature on our radar for this cycle? We are currently testing features for pre-Release sign-offs and I would need the updated feature in Beta next week so that I can test it in time.

This will not be turned on by default in 64.  It'll be enabled as part of a shield study for a subset of users.

There's no need to keep it on the radar for a full-scale rollout on release in 64, but again, there will be a Shield study and we're still targeting a timely next release, e.g. in 65. Sorry for the confusion.
