Description

16 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204
BuildID:    2002020406

I can log into most secure sites, but the lock symbol at the lower right corner
of the screen stays red and unlocked, rather than yellow and locked as it did in
previous Mozilla versions. So I do not know for sure whether my data
transmissions are secure.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to any secure site (bank, mutual fund, credit card company, etc.) and log
in to an area that should be secure. Try vanguard.com or americancentury.com,
for example.
2. Conduct transactions that should be secure (check account balance, transfer
funds, etc.)


Actual Results:  The little lock symbol in the lower right corner of the screen
stays red/unlocked even on https sites and even after logging on with user name
and secure (?) password.

Expected Results:  Either display the yellow lock symbol in "locked" mode or
tell me that SSL is not functional.

Are you using tabs?

If so this is a duplicate of bug 101723

Yes, disabling tabs solves the problem. Good call! So this is indeed probably a
duplicate of 101723. I'm sorry I didn't spot it during my query of similar bugs.

My bug does differ from bug #101723 in that (at least on my system) the lock
icon doesn't work even in the first secure tabbed window when tabs are on. You
might want to append this comment to the 101723 report; I'll leave it to your
discretion.

I'm going to mark this as a dupe.

bug 101273 has been fixed recently
Can you try a recent nightly and see if you still have the same problem you
described in comment #2(if so that would probably be a different bug)?

This is to confirm that the bug, as reported, no longer occurs in Mozilla 0.9.9 
(build 2002031104). I gotta keep better tabs on the new releases! Sorry for the 
trouble.
