Description

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311
BuildID:    2002031115

I had a non-secure (normal) web site open in Mozilla.  I opened a new tab with
ctrl-t, and went to my bank.  After logging in to their secure server, I noticed
that the lock icon in the bottom right corner was unlocked.  When I clicked on
it to see the status of my connection, I found that it was reporting information
for my first tab (the non-secure web site) and not for my connection to the
bank.  View->Page Info has the same problem:  the security tab seems to be set
to display information on the first tab, and not the currently viewed page.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a normal web page
2. Open a new tab with ctrl-t
3. Open a secure (ssl) web page
4. Click on the lock icon

Actual Results:  Information is displayed for the normal web page.

Expected Results:  Should have displayed information about the secure web page
being viewed.
try a more recent version - I'm quite sure it's fixed since

Yes, the bug you describe was fixed in bug 101723.
You will need to download 1.0rc1 (or a nightly), where it's fixed.
