Description

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #916186 +++

Bug 916186 covers the FHR case, but I'm also seeing these spammed in a lot of other tests too. Should this really have been marked as Deprecated without fixing the consumers first (or even notifying the various stakeholders this change was coming)?
What needs to be done here is replace all callers of |creationDate| by |winBirthDate| and/or |macBirthDate|.

To answer Ryan, yes, we probably should have done this. I have the impression that all uses of |creationDate| outside of FHR were added between the time the bug introducing this deprecation was taken and the time the patch landed.
