I have been getting this message when logging into the Forum:

Firefox now displays a “This connection is not secure” message when users click into the username and password fields on pages that don’t use HTTPS.

Correct, similar to what Chrome has done in the past, Firefox now plays to the safe side and alerts users of possibly dangerous behavior.

This was listed as new in the article too. [I just did not want to copy everthing over, just listed the one item I thought might get most attention as it disrupts what worked in the past.]

Firefox has always been a bugger to run Netflix on Linux. It could be done, but not without going through contortions. No moar! Last night I watched two full episodes of a telenovela, (The President has been assassinated, his dead body thrown off a hotel balcony in Mexico City! The First Lady is being framed for the crime and is on the run!), on Firefox 52 and everything was perfect.
