Details

When you are displaying a secure page, only when the page is almost loaded, the
icon that shows the security condition , changes to the locked secure icon. Is
this relevant?
i think so, and i can't remember a report of this.

imo the icon should update as soon as the main page's connection is secure, but 
no earlier than after the previous page is no longer visible on the screen.

Unfortunately we need to load everything dependent on the page (images, etc...)
to make a determination as to whether the page is mixed security.

kaie, this looks like it should be marked wontfix.
I think it should be possible to implement a behaviour, where the lock icon
indicates what we "currently" know (as the page gets loaded).

We actually know early whether the main page is loaded securely or not. We could
change the lock icon as soon as the secure connection for the main page is
established and the first couple of bytes are received.

If all goes well, and all subsequent page contents are secure, the lock icon can
stay in the secure state.

If at any time, a part of the document gets loaded over an insecure connection,
we could switch the lock icon to "mixed" mode immediately.
