Removal of OS security dialog for Windows

Owner: Brian

  • Patches have landed on m-c. Nice work Brian!
  • A second Nightly build has been manually started. Updates work silently.
  • Minor bugs being address and MAR signing patch is being reviewed and hope to land that next week. Only reported issues so far is service missing a description field and there was an extra debug print statement not removed.
  • Minor security bugs to be addressed right after the MAR signing patch (couple days of work). Releng will get me new certs and I will have to include those new certs which will be about another day.
  • Assuming Robert/Brian is comfortable with the patch on m-c, Brian will land this on Aurora (Fx11) hopefully next week.
