DeprecatedTLSVersion=This site uses a deprecated version of TLS that will be disabled in March 2020. Please upgrade to TLS 1.2 or 1.3.

This is not true anymore as the plan has changed because of COVID-19. This warning should be modified as such.

Argh, I should have caught this in bug 1512505, especially since we decided not to name a specific date in bug 1579285 out of caution...

Dana, should we just remove that date now?

Yes, this date should be removed, thank you, but we still want to encourage upgrading to higher versions of TLS.

Prathiksha has time to take this. Thyla, we would need a new string. Can you think of something? Should we just remove "in March 2020"?

Thanks Johann, Prathiksha. To avoid being vague about the timing, I think the string should read: "This site uses a deprecated version of TLS. Please upgrade to TLS 1.2 or 1.3." If we just we remove the "in March 2020", then the question of when it will be disabled might arise for the reader. We do have a plan as to the timing but perhaps we end up having to move it out further. If either of you think this should keep the "and will be disabled" is necessary, then do say.

Kohei, this should not be tracked at part of the COVID-19 bug that states 'after Fx 79'. The timing of TLS removal is being coordinated with other browser vendors and the TLS removal team will decide on the timeline.
