I've just uploaded changeset 12607947, and received a warning like this one:

Suspicious data found. Upload anyway?  highway=ford is deprecated

It's slightly confusing, as I haven't changed any highway=ford items (as you can see from the changeset). A way that I've extended does contain a highway=ford node, though.

Is there a way of getting from the "highway=ford is deprecated" line to the wiki page, or from the third line to the node browse page?

I am not sure what exactly you mean, but clicking cancel brings you to the editing window with validator opened. There if you right-click the warning you can easily find the node in question. Selecting the node would probably let you click on the preset (above tags) and from there follow the wiki link.

Thanks - from the validator I can get to the offending node and then ^h goes to the history page.

Is there any way to get to the wiki page though?

Wiki page of what? If you want to get from a node tagged highway=ford to then I did not find any way. From ford=yes you can get there.

You can right click any tag in the properties window, select "OSM wiki".

This opens a browser window with the tag description.
