    It seems it's going to be released in Firefox 50. It works in Beta by default.

    I set up a Needs change entry to update this article, since this feature is currently enabled (security.insecure_password.ui.enabled is set to "true" by default") in Firefox 50 Beta.

    I see a revision was already pending to update this article (thanks, Lan). I approved it RFL.

    P.S. I made a second revision to make the [[T:fxdesktopbeta]] template {for not fx50}. I also set up a new "Needs change" entry: Review when Fx50 is released (expiry date 11-08-2016). See discussion.

    The security.insecure_password.ui.enabled preference is still set to "false" by default in the latest Firefox 50 release. The preference is set to "true" by default in Fx51 Beta.

    I made a new revision to make the [[T:fxdesktopbeta]] template {for not fx51}. I also set up a new "Needs change" entry: Review when Fx51 is released (expiry date 01-24-2017). See discussion.

    See also: Bug 1330152 - Insecure_passwords SUMO page needs to be updated to support new UI

    P.S. This article now applies to the Firefox 51 release . I was going to replace the {for not fx51} T:fxdesktopbeta with {for not fx51}T:update fx desktop but I didn't think it will make the migration. Besides, we also need to update this article for the new UI in Firefox 52 (see Bug 1330152).

    I updated the Needs change entry to the following: [Fx51] Review {for not fx51} T:fxdesktopbeta template. This article now applies to the Firefox 51 release. [Fx52] (bug 1330152) Add info and/or screenshot for new Insecure login UI. See discussion.

    I went ahead and edited the article since the migration appears to be delayed.
