Currently we are facing something like 700 test failures with https-first mode enabled. We could annotate those tests in a somehow semi-automated fashion and then enable https-first in Nightly.

:mjurgens could you consider nominating this for a release note? (Process info)
We could include it in the nightly release notes.

Flags: needinfo?(mjurgens)

Release Note Request (optional, but appreciated)

[Why is this notable]:
In Nightly, HTTPS-First will upgrade all top-level requests (like visiting a url in the address bar or clicking a link) to use HTTPS, if the site supports HTTPS. This could confuse users who do not know about that behavior.

[Suggested wording]:
When loading a page, Nightly will now automatically try to use a secure HTTPS connection whenever possible. This behavior is known as "HTTPS-First" or "HTTPS Upgrades", and has already been the default in Firefox's private browsing mode for quite some time. Here is a blog post from back when we introduced this feature in private browsing that goes into more detail.

[Affects Firefox for Android]:
